I invite you to feast on the color and gold, the emotion and intellect of my illuminated books!
Join me to explore my extraordinary new project, Kabbalat Shabbat: the Grand Unification, with illuminated paintings of the blessings, prayers and songs with which Jewish tradition welcomes the Sabbath on Friday evening in synagogue and home. In addition to my own illuminations and commentaries, this exciting project features new translations and literary commentaries by the eminent scholar of Hebrew poetry, Dr. Raymond P. Scheindlin. Arthur Green, the leading scholar of Jewish mysticism is contributing a fascinating Preface and the Foreword by Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks promises special honor and meaning for the book. Enjoy an advance look!
Beginning July 20, 2015 I will conduct an Indiegogo campaign to complete the fundraising necessary to bring this exquisite book to light; significant funding has already been provided by Sharon and Steven Lieberman. I’ll post a link to the campaign as it goes live! Join us!
