A son’s artistic gift tears a family apart in the play, My Name is Asher Lev, by the renowned American Jewish author and rabbi, Chaim Potok. His daughter, Naama, an actress, is in Australia to speak about its universal themes.

Collectors of contemporary art, Charles and Leah Justin, have turned their home, designed by their daughter Elisa, into the Justin Art House Museum. Their first exhibition, curated by Rachael Kohn, is on Divine Abstraction.

Charles explains how each work of art is a window on to the big questions, such as God, Death, Life’s Purpose and Eternity.

Listen to Rachael Kohn’s Spirit of Things on J-Wire.

The program will be aired on Sunday May 15 at 6pm and repeated on Wednesday at 9pm.
