A partnership of Holden Village and Paths to Understanding

Us, Them and All: Weaving our Identities and Common Humanity within the Unity of Life

What do Abrahamic traditions teach about recognizing the humanity of people in other cultures or religions? Children are in still in cages, the twin pandemics of COVID-19 and institutional/structural racism are revealing even more starkly racial inequity, and vulnerable people are encouraged to risk themselves for the economy.

We are having difficulty recognizing others as human. What do Abrahamic traditions have to offer to help us weave our identities, common humanity within the unity of life?

Holden Village and Paths to Understanding invite you to live webinars, recorded webinars and podcasts and art exploration with a Jewish and Muslim artist.

There are 3 major components to Islamic Art: Arabic calligraphy, geometric patterns, and biomorphic floral patterns. Geometric art is an artform that relies on the importance of unity and order. All patterns begin with a circle from which simple polygons such squares, hexagons, and octagons are generated. They are then further dissected into more complicated patterns that have many folds of complex symmetry. Biomorphic patterns are abstracted floral patterns which have three key elements- the spiral, symmetry and structure and lastly rhythm and balance. Workshop Description: Learn to draw a Persian star pattern from the early 13th century. This pattern has both a geometric and biomorphic component. Materials needed: pencil, compass (recommended Staedtler 6" compass), ruler, eraser, tracing paper, tape, colored pens/marker (optional)

In the book of Genesis God says, “It is not good for the human to be alone.” Human beings need relationships to survive and thrive. Yet love for our in-group can lead to suspicion and even violence toward different cultures or religions. We will explore some of the challenges facing us as we engage with people of different cultures.

Midrash is the Jewish tradition of storytelling that expands and completes written scripture – the Oral Torah in addition to the Written Torah. We will use art to make midrashic commentary for the two Genesis stories of the creation of humans (Genesis 1.26-28 and Genesis 2.4-7/18-23).
We will study text, including traditional and non-traditional commentaries and artistic responses, and then will make – and if possible, share our own artistic midrash. We will probably learn some startling and inspiring perspectives on universal human dignity and gender, among other things, while expanding our capacity for visual storytelling.

This conversation will engage in deep conversation about the heart of the Abrahamic Traditions and how it can guide our lives as individuals and communities in relation to people of different cultures and religions. Now that we are all living together in our towns and cities, how can we be a part of a group while honoring other groups, sharing and receiving what we all have to offer? We will explore what the Abrahamic Tradition in its expressions of Islam, Judaism and Christianity propose about this crucial question.
