Yitzchok Moully, a Chabad Rabbi, child of former hippies, has been painting for almost 10 years. It came suddenly one night while on the web Moully bumped into the silkscreen process and a light bulb went off in his head, “I can do this!” he thought. As a Rabbinical student and amateur photographer Moully did not have any formal art training or experience. It took him six months to create his first piece – with a lot of trial and error – and Moully was hooked. There began the art career of what the media dubbed “The Pop Art Rabbi.”

Over the years Moully explored Jewish and Chassidic concepts through popular Jewish imagery in the classic pop art style. Moully’s work became recognizable showing up in calendars, publication, Purim gift sets, and t-shirts, to name a few.

But Moully was looking for more out of his work. At a gallery in Toronto Moully was blown away by the work of John Pierre Lafrance and wanted to explore abstract expressionism despite not knowing where to begin. When Moully was introduced to the Art with the Master classes by Philip Sherrod things began to fall in to place. Under the guidance of Sherrod, Moully broke through his own limitations to create what he calls ‘Post Pop’ using the silkscreens of his pop imagery as a foundation for new pieces, exploring the same imagery with a whole new perspective.

The public is invited to come and see this new body of work for the first time on display in one location at the opening ReceptionThursday, August 29 at 7pm at Hadas gallery 541 Myrtle Ave in Brooklyn.

The show will be up through the month of September, through the “High Holidays for the Arts” presented by the Jewish Student League of Pratt Institute.

A while ago I completed this painting of three doves, reflecting three Beiti Hamikdash; two in the past and one that we are waiting for with the coming of Mosiach.
When I looked at it, it seemed too ‘pure’, too perfect, to reflect the hardship that we have undergone throughout the ages, it was missing something, it was missing the struggle of 2000 years.
Today I completed the piece titled ‘Today!?’ Reflecting our hardships and our yearning to break free of Galut – Today – and bring Moshiach! As the 13 principals of Jewish faith says …I believe in the coming of Moshiach every day…

3 Chabadniks Changing The World In Unique Ways. By The Pop Chassid

Posted by on Nov 24, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

I’m proud to be in such great company.

Here is a great article by the always thoughtful blogger Elad Nehorai blogging as The Pop Chassid.

See it here on his site http://popchassid.com/chabad-change-world/ or read it below

Thank G-d, the Chabad world is known for doing a lot to change the Jewish world, as well as the world at large. However, outside of the Friendship Circle, the vast majority of the praise is heaped on the shluchim, the rabbis who have uprooted their families and started communities everywhere from Ohio to India.

But there is a new generation of Chabadniks that have learned to take the lessons of the shluchim, of going out into the world to transform it, and use their unique skills to change it in the way they best can.

Below are three Chabad-affiliated Jews who have done just that. From education to art to food, they are just the tip of the iceberg of this passionate group of individuals.

I first heard of Yocheved when I went to Chevra Ahavas Yisrael’s famous first “TED Talk”-style Shavuot. She was giving the speech when I walked in. It was about following your passion, and believing that Hashem will help you succeed in your efforts, if you really believe it is something you are meant to be doing. It was a beautiful speech, and the fact that she has lived her advice is what made it all the more powerful.

Starting with only her dream, Yocheved has created a Montessori school in the heart of Crown Heights called Lamplighters.

One of the hardest parts of education, and one of the aspects that have been advocated in even the most “old school” Jewish, and especially Chabad circles, is the need for more personalization. It is a relatively new development to have a sort of “factory” style yeshiva program that emphasizes Talmud study as the primary measure of success for each student.

Ironically, by creating a school that focuses on the individuality of its students, Yocheved is attempting to bring Jewish education back to its roots: an emphasis on focusing on an individual child’s strengths in order to help them grow both as a student and as a person.

I have had the pleasure of seeing Yocheved in action since we both live in Crown Heights, and I have never met anyone more dedicated to their mission. I will never forget when I was working for a Hurricane Sandy relief organization, and seeing how she brought her entire family, her husband and children, to volunteer for an entire day.

This told me everything I need to know about Yocheved’s dedication to education and to teaching children in creative and special ways.

Lamplighters is hosting an event this coming Sunday that is sure to be friggin’ amazing, with the Hasidic rock (and folk) stars, Moshe Hecht and Levi Robin, playing and an art display by Noah Lubin. If you can make it, I highly recommend going. Go here to buy tickets.

Ever since I met Uri in Mayanot Yeshiva, I knew he had something special to offer the world. He was one of these guys that just seemed unable to stop his passion from escaping.

Uri’s passion happens to be sustainable food, and more specifically, lacto-fermentation (traditional fermenting).

And in Mayanot, he was known for always messing around with natural foods in some way. From making kombucha in his dorm room to starting a garden in front of the yeshiva, nothing seemed able to stop him from pursuing his passion.

That’s why when I found out that he had left law school in order to start a “micro craft food” business called Brassica & Brine, I was totally not surprised. What the heck was he doing in law school anyway?

Brassica & Brine has since taken off, growing by leaps and bounds, and has also been featured in a number of mainstream news outlets.

More importantly, Uri has been at the forefront of a movement in America, as well as in the religious community, of bringing the food industry back to the basics. While many of us are increasingly having processed foods and unnatural produce shoved at us, Uri and others have been working tirelessly to encourage a different model to the way we look at food.

And, like Yocheved, he is moving the religious world forward by bringing it back to its roots. As he says, “Anyone who has read the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s memoirs as I have, and the numerous other sipurei [stories of] chassidim, develops a sense that we are lacking something today. I have a strong sense of nostalgia for that world where these great chassidim were gardeners, metal smiths, or in self-imposed exile.”

Oh, and ladies, he’s single.

The amazing thing about Yitzchok Moully is that in addition to all the things I’m about to list, he is also a full-time shliach. I am always inspired and amazed by what he does for the Jewish world.

What has he done? Moully, in case you are unaware, is an artist, also known as the “Pop Art Rabbi”. I’ve actually featured him here before, but I felt that he deserved another mention for a few of his recent projects.

He has just finished two art projects that I was personally amazed by. The first one was his “daily omer” painting. Every day, for the entire fifty days of Omer counting, Moully did an abstract painting meant to illustrate the unique characteristic of the day. Read more about this project and see all the paintings here.

The second project was an incredible art project, one that is both unique and inspiring. It is an image of the Rebbe made up of QR codes. Each QR code provides a link to the website of every Chabad center in the world. 2,500 or so in all. Incredible.

But, most importantly, Moully has a tireless advocate for increased creativity in the Jewish community. Despite his jobs as a shliach and painter, he has also started an organization called the Creative Soul which has already made a meaningful impact on the Jewish visual arts community. He runs a blog on Chabad.org that features a piece of art by Jewish artists once a day, which is great both for the artists as well as those looking for great Jewish art.

In my eyes, Moully is a hero in the Jewish art world. I only hope his example is followed by other potential leaders.

Art Instillation inspires by Hurricane Sandy & the Jewish New Year for Trees.

Posted by on Nov 24, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

Inspired by the concept of regrowth from Tu B’Shvat; the new Year for Trees (this year on January 26) Rabbi Moully of the Chabad Jewish Center in Basking Ridge created an art instillation titled Nature Vs. Nature from a tree felled by Hurricane Sandy.
In the face of the destruction of Hurricane Sandy can there be is there an opportunity for our rebirth and regrowth?
Tu B’Shvat marks the beginning of the new growth of trees and vegetation following the winter hibernation in Israel, as well as a time for personal growth.
Tu B’Shvat tells us there is always a chance for a new beginning.
From noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday, visitors of all ages will be encouraged to write a meditation, or a prayer, or a wish for a new beginning and hang it on the roots of the tree, “exploring,” Moully said, “the possibility of rebirth, even out of the destruction of Sandy.”

Nature Vs. Nature. is sponsored by the Chabad Jewish Center of Basking Ridge and Back to Nature. It will be on display and open to the public to participate Sunday, January 27. from 12 – 4pm at Back to Nature 3055 Valley Road Basking Ridge, NJ.

Here is a NJ Jewish News article on the instillation

Here is the full Press Release:

Nature Vs. Nature.

Local Artist & Chabad Rabbi transformsSandy’s destruction into a new form of hope and invites the community to join in the process

An Art Installation titled Nature Vs. Nature will be on display at “Back to Nature”,3055 Valley Road,Basking Ridge,NJ. Area residents are encouraged to interact with the installation on Sunday, January 27, 12 – 4pm

Like many residents of NJ in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, artist – Chabad Youth Rabbi & Basking Ridge resident Rabbi Yitzchok Moully was mesmerized by the truly gigantic trees that were toppled in the storm. Devastation was everywhere, with roads closed and power lines down and it took weeks to restore a sense of normality to the area.

As weeks moved in to months, Moully, driving his children daily to school inMorristowncontinued to look at the fallen trees, hoping that some industrious craftsman or carpenter was creating something beautiful from the destitution.

Then an idea hit him. Nature Vs. Nature. To create a site specific art installation comprised of 10 or more fallen trees from the area. The installation would take the huge trees with their exposed roots and turn them on their head, making the roots face the sky standing almost as tall as the original tree stood. The installation hopes to explore and visualize the power of nature and its fragility.

With a sense of urgency, Moully wants to have one tree ready for Tu B’Shvat the Jewish New Year for trees, Sunday, January 27. Biblically Tu B’Shvat is the beginning of the agricultural year in ancientIsraelthe date where tithes and taxes were calculated from. Rabbi Mendy Herson Spiritual leader of the Chabad Jewish Center describes Tu B’Shvat as; “It marks the beginning of the new growth of trees and vegetation following the winter hibernation inIsrael, as well as a time for personal growth.”

Moully sees a relationship between the rebirth of Tu B’Shvat and the fallen trees fromSandy. With nature -Sandy- creating such havoc in our lives, where is the opportunity for our rebirth and regrowth?

In what will hopefully be the first stage of the installation Moully is working together with Back to Nature a local eco friendly landscape design firm on the logistics of moving one large tree to Back to Nature’s garden center (at the corner of King George & Valley Roads, across from the Chabad Jewish Center) in time for Tu B’Shvat Sunday, January 27.

The tree will be on display for the community to see explore and interact with. Young and old are encouraged to take the inspiration of regrowth from Tu B’Shvat (the Jewish New Year for trees) and write a meditation, a prayer, a wish for a new beginning and hang it on the roots of the tree. Together the community will explore the possibility of rebirth, even out of the destruction ofSandy.

Nature Vs. Nature. is sponsored by the Chabad Jewish Center of Basking Ridge and Back to Nature. It will be on display and open to the public to participate Sunday, January 27. from 12 – 4pm at Back to Nature 3055 Valley Road Basking Ridge, NJ.

Chabad.org News Covers the Creative Soul

Chabad.org News Covers the Creative Soul

The Creative Soul – an art group i co-founded – was recently covered by Chabad.org news team at our recent artist meeting and presentation on ‘What is Jewish Art/What is Jewish Art Now’ by Shoshannah Brombacher & Elke Reva Sudin at Hadas Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.

Please Share your thoughts.
What is Jewish Art? A Diverse Palette
By Sara Trappler-Spielman

The question presented at the Hadas Gallery at the Rohr Jewish Center serving Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, N.Y., was “What is Jewish Art?” Since it was an artists’ talk, a diverse palette was to be expected. The answers, of course, ran the gamut of Jewish art history, style and perspective.

The event was organized by The Creative Soul, whose founder, Rabbi Yitzchok Moully rented a storefront in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn over the past twoSukkot holidays for Jewish artists. Moully, an artist and youth director for Chabad-Lubavitch in Basking Ridge, N.J., runs a daily blog Art for the Soul on Chabad.org featuring art, photography, videos and poems, and founded The Creative Soul to bring together artists from Chassidic and other Orthodox Jewish communities and to promote their work. The two presenting artists that evening were Shoshannah Brombacher and Elke Reva Sudin, who were raised in Jewish homes, became religious as young adults, and now reside in Brooklyn. That’s where, for the most part, their commonality ends.

As a young girl living in Holland, Brombacher said she found a poster in her father’s study of a menorahsurrounded by Hebrew letters, which later inspired her to integrate pictures with texts in her works. These resembled Jewish manuscripts, including Passover haggadahs,ketubot (wedding documents) andtikkuns, paintings of psalms and mystical images used for healing, which she once made as a commission to cure someone from illness and shared with the audience that it healed her instead. Growing up surrounded by culture and museums, she discovered her home was void of many religious objects – considered Judaism’s first art – so as a teenager she began creating them herself. Her work included an original Passover seder plate, Sabbathlamp, Havdalah spice box, challah cover and Sabbath plate.

“Good art is to paint what you live and live what you paint,” Brombacher, a self-taught artist, said. “I believe you can make pictures of all events in life.”

As seen during the length of her presentation, which included numerous clips from a career that’s lasted for more than 20 years, Brombacher began painting when she was three years old and enjoyed an academic career before becoming a full-time artist when settling in New York in 1992. She studied Ancient Middle Eastern languages, and Hebrew literature and codicology, in Leyden, Holland, later lecturing at the Free University of Berlin. She has painted life events based on Jewish holidays, marriage ceremonies, the Holocaust, 9/11, European communities and Lower East Side immigrants, Chassidic stories and portraits of rabbis.

“When you make Jewish art, you see everything as Jewish,” Brombacher explained. “What you do and see influences a Jewish artist, so you have to be careful to only see and do good things or you’ll make bad art.”

Brombacher admitted to being very influenced by her rich heritage, receiving inspiration from stories from the Torah and Midrash; still, she doesn’t think Jewish art has to only have religious themes.

“You can take a lot from history,” she said. An example she showed is a painting she made based on a story she heard about a boy waiting for the coming of the Redemption at a train station; he was later shipped to a concentration camp from the exact same station.

“Chassidic art is different than others,” Brombacher said. “It skips ethnicity and can go from East to Western Europe because we have so much history.”

She has proven this by incorporating all styles and locales, despite being a Dutch artist: Russian Cubism and a Rembrandt-style portrait of the Baal Shem Tov; a Golem of Prague series; the Russian shtetl; and life in Amsterdam, Berlin, Jerusalemand New York.

Brombacher once drew Mozart in a Passover scene, but her father responded and said, “Mozart wasn’t Jewish.”

“I know, but I am,” she answered.

“People today want to show off their Jewishness in their artwork, showing how proud they are of their Jewish identity,” said Stuart Lilian, who attended the event with his wife, Devorah, an artist.

Leah Russell, a Jewish artist who was in the audience, said after the talk that as someone who studied Judaism later in life, she comprehends that “Jewish art now is so much richer, broader and deeper.”

“Jewish art is so personal and universal,” Russell continued. “In Judaism, there’s always more. You can always go deeper.”

Sudin, who spoke after Brombacher, was raised in Massachusetts and discovered her artistic and spiritual nature while studying art at the Pratt Institute in New York. Originally drawn to Kabbalah, Sudin found the esoteric challenging to portray on canvas and then began exploring the Chassidic community in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. She was living in the southern part of the neighbohood, in a hipster world of artists. She began talking to Chassidic women living nearby, and says she found they were “sort of similar.”

“I can identify with them, even though they’re different,” Sudin said.

This led to her “Hipsters and Hassids” series, which was exhibited in New York galleries and shows the commonality between the two communities sharing opposite sides of Williamsburg. Her current solo show, titled “We are Patriarchs,” is on view at Hadas Gallery, where she spoke about her work. A stark contrast to Brombacher’s more traditional themes, the series features 15 oil paintings relating to Biblical narratives through modern-day subjects.

Sudin, an illustrator and fine-art painter, first photographed contemporary men and women, who she later embodied as patriarchs and matriarchs in her minimal, quick-stroke style. As a young married couple, Sudin and her husband, Saul, a filmmaker, still socialize with artists from Pratt and attend the Rohr Jewish Center, run by Rabbi Simcha and Ariella Weinstein, for Shabbat meals. Sudin has exhibited in solo and group shows in the New York area; Boston; Philadelphia; Hartford, Conn.; and Colorado.

“The series is about looking back and also how people will look at us in the future,” Sudin said. “We don’t know how a Biblical person looked, but we can all relate to it.”

“When you tell a specific story, it gives something for people to latch onto,” Sudin continued. “I use ornaments to tell stories.”

Among the modern renditions are a Puerto Rican Jewish woman featured as a modern-day Yael in geisha-patterned clothing who defeated the Canaanite GeneralSisera; Persian-American Jews as Jacob and Leah in Leah’s tent with a large Persian rug; a Yiddish farmer wearing tzitzit from upstate New York as a chained Samson; and Rabbi Shlomo Yaffe, permanent scholar-in-residence at Chabad serving Harvard University, as a contemporary rabbi teaching a student depicted with Torah scroll cases in a painting titled “Joshua, Disciple of Moses.”

Rivka Nehorai, an artist who attended the event, said she related to Sudin. “She’s thinking hard about how she understands the world around her. She’s open and wants to share, stretch boundaries and unite people from different backgrounds.”

Nehorai also enjoyed seeing the juxtaposition of the two women in how they define themselves as Jewish artists. “They’re different generations. Shoshanna’s an immigrant; Elke is American-born. They’re speaking different languages and in different circles, but there’s still some similarity.”

Counting the Omer; One Abstract Painting at a Time

Posted by on Nov 24, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

As we get to the end of the Omer counting I’m glad to share a Press Release about the Abstract Omer Project:
Rabbi Yitzchok Moully—Pop Art Rabbi—Debuts New Line of Artwork
By YQ Media

When spirituality, emotion and art merge, they create a trifecta that best expresses the soul, humanity and growth potential of a person. Artist and rabbi, Yitzchok Moully made it his mission to blend the three by fusing his love for abstract art with the spirituality and emotion inherent in each day and week of the Sefirat Ha’Omer, the counting of the 49 days between the Passover and Shavuot holidays, culminating in the celebration of the Jewish people receiving the Torah on Mount Sinai.

According to Kabbalah, each of the seven weeks, as well as each individual day, has its own unique quality and characteristic. According to kabbalah and Jewish mysticism, each day corresponds to two ‘sefirot,’ or human emotions – one corresponding to the week and another to the day itself. Rabbi Moully associates each emotion with a vibrant color, with each day represented by a unique piece of artwork consisting of a combination of two colors. The artwork for each day of the Omer is posted online after nightfall.

The Omer map under construction shows the 7 weeks of the Omer horizontally, with the spiritual color attributed to each week placed above it. The days of each week are organized from right to left, with each day represented by a different color as well.

For example, the artwork for Day 31, whose kabbalistic attribute is ‘Tiferet of Hod’—Beauty/Authenticity of Humility—is painted on a bright orange background, with a yellow, cyclone-like swirl occupying most of it. The caption reads, “Beauty, compassion, humility… internalize these traits, make them your own, and you will be one step close to becoming a complete person.”

On some days, Rabbi Moully has an idea in mind before descending to his basement studio to paint, but on others the emotions of the day find expression only after the paintbrush is already in hand. Current events influenced Day 23, a day dedicated to the victims of the previous day’s Boston marathon bombings. ‘Gevurah of Netzach’—Strength/Discipline of Victory/Endurance—was the spiritual attribute of that day’s Omer, and is represented by blood red spatters on a dark purple background. The caption describes how success in a marathon, as in life itself, requires endurance and discipline, both of which are even more necessary during tough times.

Rabbi Moully was born in Australia, and currently serves as a Chabad rabbi in New Jersey. He sees art as a way to make Judaism relevant to today’s youth and unaffiliated Jews. His passion for art began with photography and evolved into his current fascination with the expressive power of abstract art. His ability to convey ancient wisdom using modern forms of expression has earned him the title “Pop Art Rabbi.” His works have been exhibited in Philadelphia, New York, Melbourne, Venice and Toronto.

Rabbi Moully’s Omer project has been featured on The Huffington Post’s live Omer counting blog, and the rabbi was recently profiled in Mishpacha Magazine and has made an appearance on Oprah’s Next Chapter. Rabbi Moully’s art has succeeded in overriding cultural barriers and generating a positive perception of Orthodox and Chassidic Judaism.

Fans of the Pop Art Rabbi follow the Omer map as it develops and expands, and anxiously look forward to the completed project. Each day’s artwork can be viewed on the Jewish Pop Art website or on Facebook. Although Rabbi Moully has not yet decided on a final home for the project’s artwork after its completion, one thing is certain: they will not remain in Rabbi Moully’s basement for long.
