The Illuminated Torah: Yonah Weinrib

February 4, 2007 - May 27, 2007
Popper Gallery

Rabbi Yonah Weinrib is both a Torah scholar and an artist. This amazing manuscript was executed as a private commission. It combines pen and ink, watercolor, gouache, and airbrush painting on parchment, together with calligraphy, micrography, and elaborate illumination. The illustrations are based on Rabbi Weinrib’s profound scholarship and knowledge of traditional commentaries. He has exhibited and lectured extensively in the U.S. and the international Jewish community. This is his third exhibition at Yeshiva University Museum.
