I began this blog a decade ago by inviting students, teachers, visitors, and residents to document life in JerUSAlems in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Maryland, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Utah, and Vermont.
Museums in the 12 states with places called JerUSAlem are now joining museums throughout the world in a Global Tribute to Rembrandt. See participating museums in USA below and museums worldwide at http://globaltributetorembrandt.blogspot.com.

Greenville Museum of Art in Greenville, North Carolina: 6,180 miles from Jerusalem, Israel; 211 miles from Jerusalem, North Carolina; or 0 Cybermiles
As a digital homage to Rembrandt on the 350th anniversary of his death, artist Mel Alexenberg is launching cyberangels from Land of Israel, the setting of Rembrandt's Bible themed artworks, to art museums in the twelve US states that have places named JerUSAlem.
“He had a vision in a dream. A ladder was standing on the ground, its top reaching up towards heaven as Divine angels were going up and down on it.” (Genesis 28:12)
Angels in Jacob’s dream go up from the Land of Israel and go down throughout the world.

Bottom image: Alexenberg’s lithograph “Digitize Homage to Rembrandt: Day Angels” that has been in the collection of Meridian Museum of Art since 1986. In tribute to Rembrandt on the 350th year of his death, his digitized angels dormant in the museum’s flat files awaken to adorn the cover of the 2019 book Through a Bible Lens. The Rembrandt inspired cyberangels fly from the book cover to Greenville, North Carolina, 211 miles from Jerusalem, North Carolina. Follow Global Tribute to Rembrandt blog
