Rabbi Portrait Series

About the series

This series began with the idea to paint a whimsical pop art Rabbi Soloveitchik to give to my Rabbi, and then it took on a life of its own. I am extremely passionate about Judaism: it is my home and my heart. I have an insatiable need for Jewish learning of all types and have an ever-growing collection of Jewish books. I have spent an enormous amount of time with each of these men, who are religious and intellectual giants in Judaism. I grow to learn about them through their words and through stories about their lives, and I fall in love with them. Simply put, these works are an expression of that love. I hope you enjoy them.
