About the Book
Shimon Cowen has assembled this title as the basis of a course on Judaism and aesthetics. It encompasses both pieces addressing the theory of this subject as well as analysis of examples of the work of major Australian Jewish artists - in painting (Victor Majzner), writing (Richard Freadman) and music (Felix Werder). He also has a segment addressed to practical issues of the pedagogy, the teaching and encouragement of the arts, informed by traditional Judaism.
About the Author
Rabbi Dr Shimon Cowen, son of a former Governor General of Australia, Sir Zelman Cowen OBM, has a dual background in secular and religious studies. He has a PhD in social philosophy. He has been a Senior Research Fellow at Monash University and Program Director of a postgraduate Rabbinic Institute, the Kollel Menachem Lubavitch in Melbourne. In 1998 he ''fused'' these strands in the establishment of the Institute for Judaism and Civilization as its founding Director.
