The dynamic, sometimes challenging, process of seeking truth, even in mundane matters, is connected at its core to a tradition of dispute. It is a uniquely Jewish path which empowers humankind’s quest to repair the world, and along the way, perhaps even find transcendence. The theme for the Jerusalem Biennale 2019 For Heaven’s Sake! (LeShem Shamayim) puts an emphasis on the motivation of an act rather than on the act itself, and connects it with, of all things, arguments and disagreements.
