Tallitot

I think it's fair to say that I came into my artist identity when I started to make painted silk tallitot* in 1992.

At the time, most available ones were designed with blue or black stripes. The changing involvement of women in Jewish life has strongly influenced my work.

I have been blessed to be part of a renaissance in the world of Jewish ritual art.

One of my tallitot is part of the permanent collection at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem as a sample of contemporary ritual objects.

While I no longer carry a stock of tallitot, I will be happy to make one for you, or better yet, you come make one with me!
