Obituary: Baruch Nachshon, Pioneering Chassidic Artist, 82

Baruch Nachshon, a pioneer of contemporary Chassidic art and a leading force behind the re-establishment of the ancient Jewish community of Hebron following the Six-Day War, who drew from the wellsprings of Jewish mystical teachings to create deeply evocative paintings that “emphasized the presence of the active Divine Will in creation,” passed away on Monday, Sept. 13 (7 Tishrei,) in Israel. He was 82.
