School: Talmud Torah of Minneapolis

Instructor: Daniel Ettedgui

Artist's Statement
"The boys and girls in the world live together; they coexist yet they are all different. Whether they are black or white, Jewish, Christian, Buddhist or Muslim, they live together. Whether they are tall or short, large or small, with glasses or without, blonde, brunette, redheaded or bald, they live together in the same communities everyday. Coexistence, it is going on everyday."

Title: "Not To Me"
Student: Becca Miner
Media: Watercolor on Paper
Grade: 10th Grade (Bet Midrash)
School: Talmud Torah of Minneapolis
Class: Holocaust and Anti-Semitism Course
Instructor: Daniel Ettedgui

Artist's Statement
"The moon weeps into a small, plain pail that waits below to catch its tears. But wait; I've always thought that the moon does not shed tears. And why does that plain, little pail receive all of them? Not in my world! Not to me! This is definitely wrong. But it is. I can see it. I am not crazy. I guess it doesn't hurt anyone. I guess my life goes on. I guess others feel the same way about me. Let the moon weep! Let the pail catch its tears! I can coexist."
