May: Asian/Pacific Islander Heritage and Jewish American Heritage Month
May is also Jewish American Heritage Month. Here is a powerful Ted Talk from Eitan Chitayat who describes why he felt compelled to create “I’m that Jew” a 6-minute stereotype-defying tour de force in response to the 2015 Charlie Hebdo and kosher supermarket attacks in Paris.
Both Amy Tan and Eitan Chitayat focus on creating from chaos, using different forms of art to recreate meaning from tragedy. I hope you have a few minutes to listen to them both and see how their "otherness" and how their experiences drive their work.
