Original Press Release
The Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership is pleased to present this debut exhibit of work by local architect and designer Amy Reichert. Amy Reichert has been creating Jewish ritual objects (or Judaica) since 1995 when she was inspired to create a Passover seder plate for a competition funded by Philip and Sylvia Spertus (the son and daughter-in-law of Herman Spertus, one of the brothers for whom Spertus Institute is named). Ms. Reichert’s creative process fuses sophisticated interpretation of Jewish texts with innovative contemporary design to express the essence of objects used for celebrations and ceremonies. Ms. Reichert received her BA and MArch from Yale University. She combines her studio work with teaching at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
