Denis MacEoin has just sent in a comment about the Haredi Jewish attitude to pictorial representations.
I've found this:
on the attitude of various religions. Whatever the official attitude, Jewish weddings are known for their photos, with male photographers even allowed into the female part of the very strictly segregated types of wedding which were prevalent in my area of north Manchester, for instance.
In the good old days when some of us thought that we could have a reasonable dialogue between Jewish, Christian and Muslim women in Britain, there were a couple of dialogue=type meetings in my house. But each time that the Christians present suggested bringing a piece of music or work of art which represented our feelings towards our religion, the Muslim representative objected and said it was against her religion.
However, here in Israel, not only do the Arab children in Jaffa study music and art, but they bring in examples of Arab music to play in lessons. They are proud of their musical heritage and I'm pretty sure they are proud of their architectural heritage as well.
I'll have a word with the art teacher next week and see what she thinks.
Thanks for posing the question, Denis.
