Director of Jewish Living and Learning, Rabbi Zac Kamenetz uses Jewish text to provide a unique tour and talk through the exhibition Sabbath: The 2017 Dorothy Saxe Invitational. 

Rabbi Zac Kamenetz wants to know: What good can I do in this world? What have folks before me tried? Most often, he looks to ancient Jewish sources of wisdom for inspiration to these questions, but he also gets some help from Leonard Cohen, Mark Rothko, and his wife Jen, and little girl. Kamenetz received rabbinic ordination in Jerusalem and has degrees from the University of Maryland and the Graduate Theological Union, and is a qualified instructor of MBSR from the University of Massachusetts Center for Mindfulness.
