Benn was born in Bialystok (in the page is written ">from russia" and his
name was Ben Cyon Rabiniwicz, There was an exposition in his honor from
October 6 to October 13 2005 organaizad by "BIBLE a NEULLY" with the
municipality of Neully sur Seine, FRANCE.

29 Benn's paintings were exposed under the inspiration of the psalms.
He arrived Paris in 1930 and became part of "l'ecole de Paris" were he
joints foreigner painters like Chagall, Soutine, Kisling, Modigliani...
artists that were running away >from persecutions. In the years of the
occupation he painted the first "visions" of the psalms.
The paintings trascended the apparances and went further into the mystery
of the psalms.

Dear BialyGenners:

Solomon Rabinowicz was the architect who designed and built the
Bialystok Great Synagogue. See
http://www.zabludow.com/bialystokgreatsynagogue.html for more
information.

Solomon's son, Ben-Zion, was a great artist who lived in Paris and used
the name BENN (1905-1989). BENN is being honored in Paris on the
occasion of the 100th anniversary of his birth. The website for this
honor is http://www.bibleaneuilly.org/expobenn.html.

As are many Americans, I am language challenged and do not read French.
Anyone who does read French, please help us out and provide a brief
summary of this website honoring our landsman BENN.

If anyone knows of a website where we can find out more about BENN's
works, please let us know.

Hag Sameach,
Mark Halpern
