The Golden Calf: Back By Popular Demand (and why it's good for the Jews)

By Amichai Lau-Lavie

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), February 2005

The author argues that while part of our higher consciousness is able to contain the illusive abstract, another part of our soul demands the sensory existence of physical body. In the past, these two domains were bridged by prophets, while today the artist might best fit this role. He argues for the necessity of supporting Jewish artists.
