Artist In Residence

Artist-in-Residence with Mordechai Rosenstein

Thursday, November 9 - Sunday, November 12

"The Hebrew alphabet is the very essence of the art of Mordechai. His love of these forms is evident in every work of art he creates. Using vibrant shapes and colors, he has enhanced synagogues and numerous commercial and private estates throughout the country. From vivid tapestries to murals, silk prints to stained glass and more, Judaica lives through the art of Mordechai."
