The alteration of a famous painting by Maurice Gottlieb at the Diaspora Museum in Tel Aviv is not just bad art, it is boorish and sexist. This painting, "Jews Praying in the Synagogue on Yom Kippur" depicts both men and women in the act of davening. In the Diaspora museum, these women, half of the painting, have been simply doctored out. Across the museum, women are omitted, minimizing and trivializing their role in Jewish and Israeli life. This misogyny is an affront to the values of the Jewish people.
