Walk-Bye and Congregation B’nai Jacob showcase Jersey City artists to honor…

first_img× “The past year has been a period of great upheaval with the pandemic and social unrest across the country. I wanted to raise awareness of Tu b’Shevat as we head into a brand new year,” said Rabbi Mullin. “Our synagogue has always sought to create not only space for religion, but also for arts and activism. People need art more than ever now, so I saw this as a unique opportunity to partner with an active local arts organization like Walk-Bye.”This show marks the first time that Walk-Bye will provide financial compensation to the chosen artists thanks to the generosity of the show’s financial benefactors. Lead sponsor Fields Grade, Leeann and Leemark, Councilwoman Mira Prinz-Arey and Minuteman Jersey City are underwriting the cost of production.The show is the fourth installation in Aranguren’s series of outdoor community art exhibits and the first one in 2021. Walk-Bye has sought to create opportunities for Jersey City Residents to display and view local artwork in a safe manner during the Covid-19 pandemic. Past exhibits include outdoor shows in June and October of last year held in various Jersey City parks followed by a December photo display to commemorate Human Rights Day and International Human Solidarity Day with Welcome Home, a local refugee support organization.For more information on the exhibit and artists, please follow @Walk_Bye on Instagram.About Walk-ByeWALK-BYE, founded in 2020 by Catalina Aranguren, is a collective outdoor art exhibition of original work, visible to the public from a distance. The installation strives to bring artists and community members together to create a sense of connectivity during the current pandemic.About Congregation B’nai JacobCongregation B’nai Jacob is a contemporary egalitarian synagogue and Jersey City dedicated to supporting the Jewish community in Hudson County. We strive to foster meaningful spiritual experiences and a sense of Jewish connection by providing a welcoming environment and opportunities for growth and learning. We dedicate ourselves to a policy of non-discrimination on the basis of gender, sexual orientation and interfaith family structure. We also have a long-standing tradition of being at the forefront of social change, supporting the struggle for civil and human rights for all. Catalina Aranguren, founder of Walk-Bye by Argia Photography, brings her latest community art installation to life in partnership with Rabbi Bronwen Mullin of Congregation B’nai Jacob in Jersey City. The exhibition titled “Group Show – /ˈradək(ə)l/ – roots, body & fruit” will showcase original work by local artists with an unveiling at the synagogue at 4PM on January 28.The show is inspired by the Jewish holiday Tu b’Shevat – translated literally as “New Year for the trees”. It is celebrated in contemporary Israel, as an ecological awareness day, and trees are planted in celebration. Walk-Bye held open submissions for artwork starting mid December, calling on local artists of all ages, religions, and sexes, to explore the duality of how a festival of trees, growth and prosperity happens in the winter within the context of personal, spiritual, and intellectual growth.“The show’s title comes from the part of a plant embryo that develops into the primary root,” said Aranguren. “I wanted the show to include more than just representations of trees, so ‘radicle’ seemed like the perfect choice. I also liked the play on the sound similarity to ‘radical’ given everything that’s happened in the world in the past year.”last_img read more

Family First vows to fight move to de-register it as charity

first_imgNewsTalk ZB 7 April 2016Having fought through the courts last year to be recognised as a charity, lobby group Family First must go through the process again.The Charities Board has sent the group notification that it doesn’t consider the Trust continues to qualify for registration, as it has an independent purpose to promote and protect the traditional family.Family First National Director Bob McCoskrie said it’s disturbing that any charity speaking up on issues deemed incorrect by the political elite, are in danger of being penalised.“There’s a number of charities who do speak up on issues that politicians get involved in, so therefore it becomes a political issue, and if the Charities Commission is going to come after us, then there’s a whole lot of other organisations that are going to be looking over the shoulder.”“Samples of organisations that do similar work to us in terms of political advocacy, would be Child Poverty Action Group, Amnesty International, Save Animals From Exploitation, Vegan Society, ASH, New Zealand Drug Foundation, National Council of Women.”Mr McCoskrie said the group will again defend its status in court, but if it loses, a lot of other groups should be worried. He said the move won’t stop their advocacy work, but it will cost it tax breaks.“And obviously there is a lot of credibility in terms of being registered as a charity as well, so all we’re asking for is consistency, and that’s what the Charities Board is not using.” read more
