Melissa Shiff’s Jewish Mandalas

Melissa Shiff’s spinning mandalas are created from Jewish images taken from museum collections. She talks to the Forward’s arts and culture editor, Dan Friedman, about how she chooses the images, how she makes the mandalas and what, exactly, mandalas are.

See Shiff’s mandalas installed at Toronto’s Koffler Center.
