Woman of Valour: An Evolving View of the Jewish Body
Edah

A minyan refers to the quorum of ten male Jewish adults required for
certain religious obligations. such as saying Kaddish and reading from
the torah. I staged a photographs of myself actively involved in
different prayer rituals such as holding the torah and laying
teffilian and through digital compositing; I places10 of my bodies
throughout the space. The sum of my 10 bodies (all me) becomes the
critical mass of the Minyan. This questions the tradition of 10 physical bodies to
make a minyan in the wake of the age of digital technology.
