Illuminating Judaism: A Personal Artistic Journey
David began his career with a love of Hebrew calligraphy. He is responsible for the revival of the hand-made illuminated Hebrew marriage contract, created an important Haggadah and is a partner in the Tree of Life Shtender—a sculptural prayer/study stand. Whether creating books, prints, ritual objects, educational programs, or communal buildings, David synthesizes text and tradition with the spark of creativity and meticulous craftsmanship. He co-founded Kol HaOt, which harnesses the power of the arts for Jewish inspiration, leads The Teachers Institute for the Arts, which brings his educational vision into day schools and produces an ongoing series of limited editions works for a group of private and institutional subscribers.
