From Selfies to Spirituality: A Blog as a Torah Art Form

See my Times of Israel  article:

The Torah portion read in synagogues worldwide on 1 July 2015/16 Av 5775 is Va'ethanan/ Implored (Deuteronomy 3:23-7:11). 

Read creative explorations of this week’s Torah portion in my book  
Photograph God: Creating a Spiritual Blog of Your Life http://photographgod.com.

I created the Torah Tweets blogart project with my wife Miriam to celebrate our 52nd year of marriage.  During each of the 52 weeks of our 52nd year, we posted six photographs reflecting our life together with a text of tweets that relates the weekly Torah reading to our lives.  

You can access it with all six photographs at the blog post:  http://bibleblogyourlife.blogspot.co.il/2014/01/deuteronomy-2-blog-as-torah-art-form.html

The Jewish thing to do is make art to eat.  My wife Miriam and I made a banana cake for Shabbat.  Miriam measured out the ingredients while I mashed the bananas.  Our art is a tasty version of Internet images of the surface of Mars.
