Rembrandt van Rijn lived in a Jewish neighborhood, painted Jewish subjects, and interpreted the Hebrew Bible with extraordinary sensitivity. Possibly through his friendship with Rabbi Menasseh ben Israel, Rembrandt also incorporated post-Biblical Jewish traditions in some of his most celebrated Biblical paintings, culminating in “Jacob Blesses the Sons of Joseph.”
