Rosh Hashanah.  

rosh hashanah

" Rosh Hashanah 1938. This was the last Rosh Hashanah service that my zayde, Chaim, and his neighbor, Baresh--the two patriarchs of the village--conducted. Shabbos and holiday services were always conducted in Shmuel's house, one of the largest and nicest in Mniszek. Most of the furniture was removed, and the Torah was placed in a closet draped with curtains."

Embroidery and fabric collage, 1996.
32"W x 42"H.

Gallery narration by Esther's daughters.
