St. Louis welcomes artist Mordechai Rosenstein

Israeli artist Mordechai Rosenstein will display his art and interact with St. Louis community members December 5-14. Mr. Rosenstein will begin his week at Congregation Shaare Emeth Friday Dec. 5 to Saturday, Dec. 6. He will continue his workshops at Temple Emanuel on Sunday, Dec. 7, at the JCC during the week, and at United Hebrew for the Dec. 12 – 14 weekend.

The Hebrew alphabet is the essence of the art of Mordechai Rosenstein. “The flowing forms of the letters have been an inspiration to me since my youth. ” Mordechai’s love of these forms is evident in every piece he creates. His vibrant shapes and colors enhance synagogue interiors, tapestries, paintings, murals, and silk screen prints.
