Amili Gelbman, Baylis Trial

Star of David Israeli art Photo of Star of David and other religious symbols is courtesy of Amili Gelbman

This is her new work which was born as a reaction to the information she gathered about Mendel Baylis Trial while she was instructing young Jews in an art camp in the U.S, and to stories about Anti- Semitism she heard there.
On the right we see(abstract)Jewish life in the Diaspora, present and past.
On the left: wishful thinking of a brighter future of harmonious religious coexistance: symbols of Cross, half moon and Magen David.
