Yehudis Jacobowitz, Hidur Design's creative director, specializes in paintings and artwork she likes to title as "New Jewish Art" – artwork dealing with Jewish content, religious and spiritual concepts and the greater range of Jewish or Israeli identity. The artwork is available for sale and also exhibited as the "mysticARTinitinere" project throughout Israel, Europe and the USA. Please read more about it from its curator Giuseppe Ussani d'Escobar (Rome, Italy).

To understand the world in its depth, it is necessary to be on the move – considering that man takes steps on this earth every day, albeit small ones, in the same way a child faces and discovers the marvels of creation for the first time.
Yehudis Jacobowitz is an artist, and foremost a woman, traveling a path through the illuminating symbols of the universe, which she manages to capture. The universe can be compared to a book, from which man has to decipher the messages in order to improve his consciousness, his state of awareness, and thus his interaction with nature and society.
Mysticism is about immersing oneself in the mysterious and holy codes of this universe and let oneself go, loose oneself to eventually find oneself; liberate oneself of one‘s own ferocious and insatiable individualism – to find love. And so, here are the letters of the Hebrew alphabet of Yehudis, personifications of man, who attempts to find his origin again through prayer, striving to arrive at a renewal, a rebirth.
The works of Yehudis are an invitation to get connected again to the creator‘s spirit, to reexamine the sense of life. In a world that collapses into depression and loneliness of the soul, it‘s essential to find true and fundamental principles, a way of being, setting aside the excessive consumerism: only in this way man will be able to heal and regain his dignity. Art is mystic, and it is the mysticism of beauty that emanates from the works of the artist. Yehudis unites the figurative with the abstract, discovering the letters to be her agents, a ring of conjunction; the abstract becomes a fabric, a thread interweaving the dots.
The »mysticARTinitinere« project wants to be a revival of man‘s core values, in the modernity and actuality of expressive means, communicated in an innovative and original manner – proposing a journey from one continent to another, from one city to another, hosted by the most diverse cultures: because mysticism is always in fashion, it belongs to everyone, without distinctions; and this means to create and transmit culture in a positive way.
