In Every Generation

For many years, Professor Yehudi Lindeman and Irene Angelico have conducted a special annual seder on Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Commemmoration Day. They developed their own beautiful hagaddah, a guidebook to those who wish to recreate the ritual.  I was honored to be asked to create some few calligraphic touches for the book that was recently published by Vehicule Press in Montreal. This panel translates roughly to mean “In every generation one should look to oneself as though he or she had personally left Egypt.” The original painting is lettered in gouache over a watercolor wash....

Poring over Shop Drawings!

  A few months before this photo was taken, I never would have imagined myself at home in a woodworker’s shop studying architect’s drawings!  But here I am, poring over Steve Spector’s plans for the ark wall about to rise in a new synagogue as I calculate the amount of art glass I’d be cutting and grinding.  Back in junior high school, when my friend Eve Sandberg petitioned all the way to the superintendent of schools to be permitted to take wood shop (and failed!) neither of us could have imagined this.  What a life!

At work on a Torah Mantle

Mmmm… luscious colors and textures!  Silks, Czech beads, and fabulous ideas gleaned from the questionnaire I sent to Hillel members at Goucher College and the two full time staff members all come together here as I piece together a Torah mantle for the organization’s first Torah of its very own.  What an honor – and what a delight!...

Synagogue Datestone

A love and respect for lettering arts means that I often have a knee-jerk reaction to seeing Hebrew letters pulled up from a website with no real understanding of their historic forms.  My reaction to seeing a rough computer rendering of this datestone had me jump to say, “Please, let me hand letter this!”  This is not my first rendering ‘carved in stone’ as it were, and it pleases me greatly to see it...

Torah Dedication – New Mantles at Dickinson College

Torah Dedication – New Mantles at Dickinson College

I was commissioned to craft two Torah mantles for scrolls at the Dickinson College Hillel.  A metal and glass ark by Gary Rosenthal preceded the commission and I used the timing as an opportunity to engage students in a workshop to really look at the colors, textures and images of the ark.  The students identified color and worked with me as we sketched the two different mantles.  Here’s the result!  A ceremonial wimple accompanies the Torah mantles and hangs near the ark when not in...

Illuminated passage

This colorful piece of lettering art was commissioned to honor a man who had served many years doing important interfaith work within a large community.  In the style of illuminated manuscript art, the incorporation of original Hebrew text and its English translation makes it a cherished...
