Ein Sof Gallery unveils "Deciphering Nostalgia", which is a student exhibition featuring the work of seven artists from the University of the Arts London. Through a variety of mediums, including performance, painting and photography, these artists explore the idea of nostalgia through the lens of Jewish culture and tradition. The show features a diverse range of approaches to this theme, mirroring the wide spectrum of Jewish thought and identity that exists today.
