Exile is punishment; exile is a constant reminder of our fallen status; exile fills us with longings for a permanent home we cannot possess. Paradoxically exile is also where we are most comfortable and where we are most creative with our lives. Exile produced the Talmud, the Zohar, the Rambam and the Shulhan Aruch. Exile, tragically and triumphantly, is still the place of Judaism. The art of Shoshannah Brombacher is a poignant exploration of the art of exile.
