How did an Egyptian boy growing up in Pharaoh’s house turn against his past and lead the Israelites out of Egypt? What qualities throughout his lifetime earned him the role of the receiver of the Torah? And how has his story been told through stained glass, canvas, ceramics, and ivory? Join Drisha at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to explore the artistic rendering and recontextualization of some of the biblical stories relating to Moshe. We will study the biblical art within its historical context and alongside classical rabbinic and medieval commentaries.
