Rabbi Nosson Zvi Finkel, “Alter of Slabodka” 1849-1927. 16×20 Acrylic on canvas


Each original artwork starts with a subject idea that is meaningful for me personally, followed by daydreaming and a sketch. I painstakingly work on each piece, whether it be for three weeks or more, until each and every detail is right. I use the highest quality paints and cover the painting with a varnish so that it will not crack nor yellow. The canvas is top-grade and hand woven in India, and finished with three coats of primer. The stretcher bars are made of solid wood and are treated to be warp-proof. These pieces are made to last.

Rabbi Nosson Zvi Finkel, also known as The Alter of Slabodka is most well known for
his involvement in the Yeshiva world. While he established numerous Yeshivot in
Lithuania and Poland, the most renown was the Slabodka Yeshiva. He stressed
teaching mussar (ethics) in addition to Talmud. Extremely devoted, he gathered up
students from far and wide to enable them to learn and become gedolim. He was truly a
tzaddik and had an unusually intuitive connection with his students often seeing their
potential before they themselves did. He was close with them and they called him
“father”; Alter or Der Alter. He eventually founded what is now Yeshivas Chevron, still
a prestigious institution. He passed away in Eretz Israel.
