Soul and Structure

Poster for the Academy of Jewish Thought and Learning.

Ner Tamid, also known as the eternal flame in Judaism is a sanctuary lamp that hangs above the ark in every synagogue, which represents the seven-branched lamp that stood in front of the Temple of Jerusalem. It serves as a reminder that God is ever present, and therefore the light is never extinguished. The Ner Tamid serves as a reminder of constant dedication to religious practice.

“Soul and Structure” is a set of courses handling the various practices in Judaism and serves as a reminder to religiously practicing Jews that their customs and teachings have a greater importance attached to them. The course reintroduces the foundational principles to a practitioner who wishes to enhance his understanding of Judaism.

The string illustration of an interconnected and overlapping Ner Tamid creates an inspiring image of a united whole. The strings and nails become the sum of the parts making up the whole which represents strong foundation. Using these metaphors creates an identity of introspection, integrity and cohesion which illuminates the characteristics of the course material to people who seek wisdom and insight within their own religious lives.


Poster for the Academy of Jewish Thought and Learning.

Maimonides is a highly influential figure in Jewish history, religion, politics and medicine, who played a very important role in strengthening his community. He classifies as a renaissance man through his multifaceted nature, which lead to the cubist depiction of him in the illustration. Cubism breaks the boundaries of naturalism and allows for the exhibiting of his various aspects and expresses how he lived beyond constraints.

He has been placed on a pedestal to represent his high status and to suggest the value of studying and reflecting on his life. The Academy’s course allows for an in depth view into his life, struggles and accomplishments, by delving into his work and life mission.

The imagery unpacks the different aspects of his story visually, beckoning a person to join the Academy in unfolding his complex nature. The character of the project is inquisitive and empirical”  and makes use of a clever contrast of organization and spontaneity, creating a visual expectations of discovering the intricacies of a complex man.


Poster for the Academy of Jewish Thought and Learning.

The Visionaries are key individuals who united a fragmented nation into a strong and striving nation. The Visionaries mentioned in the course material are depicted in the profiles filling the outline of Israel. Hebrew reads in the opposite direction to western language, implying that facing the individuals to the left instead of to the right creates an image of positive progress in cultural awareness. The elements together suggest that the visionaries are the driving force behind Israel’s progress.

The image motivates a modern Zionist appreciative of the State of Israel to find out who the people where who helped establish it. The Academy’s course explores the lives of these individuals and their contributions, giving a student a wealth of knowledge that would be dear to them.

The illustration connects a Zionist to their inherent kinship and conveys that the Academy has put together scholarly and inspirational material. The image is characterized by wholeness, individual duty and kinship identifies with the motivations of individuals pursuing a unified goal.
