  • In Benny’s words: ‘In the language of Jewish symbols, many creatures are depicted looking backwards, like the deer in the painting “Ehrlichkayt,” touching his nose with his hoof, thereby creating a circle. Often, we cannot go forward without looking backward.” This is a wonderful concept to have in mind when thinking about KlezKanada, where Jewish heritage and ever-evolving contemporary artistic creation coexist and inspire.
