Homage to Chagall's "The Violinist"

I created this as a submission for a music-related competition -- designing little artworks to represent various categories in an online music archive. This is my homage to Marc Chagall's "The Violinist" (see below), for a category of music called "American Klezmer."

Torah restoration "before and after" photos

My synagogue, Temple Ahavat Shalom, is currently restoring a 350 year-old Torah (details here); I couldn't resist sharing a couple of "before and after" photos showing the great work our sofer is doing. (Click the images below to see them larger.) The best part? Everyone at the synagogue gets a chance to write a letter in the Torah!
