Rewriting Deuteronomy

We feel that it is very important to mark and transform those aspects of our Jewish inheritance that are based on patriarchal rule and the oppression of women. That is why we decided to rewrite this offensive passage in the Bible about marriage rites and the control of woman’s sexuality at our wedding ceremony. Unlike the harsh verdict of Deuteronomy, we decided to cast off the words of patriarchy and injustice with the aid of the software program Aftereffects to be left with free-floating signs from which to create poetry. In the end, the new text is incorporated into the Torah symbolically indexing the sacred text as permeable and permutable.
