BC: Beloved Papercut by Jerise Fogel A beautiful way to say "I love you." Entwined trees with branches and roots, and in between them sits Hebrew lettering from Song of Songs: "I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine" ("ani l'dodi v'dodi li"). These papercut designs are each cut by hand: papercutting is a traditional Jewish art. Cards are approximately 4.25"x5.5” (A2 size envelope included), and are also suitable for framing. $10

1: Tikva Adler experiences artwork as what some people refer to as “prayer” or “meditation” because it brings her awareness fully into the present moment. When she is creating, it is like there is no separation between her and the canvas. The resulting artwork is full of life and vibrant color. Because she gives a lot of attention to nature, mystical Judaism, environmentalism, and the “divine feminine”, her artwork often takes on these themes. Contact her at: ARTikva@gmail.com. Check out more of her artwork + latest adventures on her blog "Blogging While Trapped Under A Nursing Baby": http://tikvaadler.wordpress.com Top Left: Lecha Dodi, $150 Bottom Left: Chamsa, $95 Right: Sabbath Candles, $95

5: Marlene Burns breathes life into Hebrew prayers, psalms and holidays onto canvas. In her most recent series of Judaic expressions, Marlene, an accomplished abstract expressionist, is combining her love of Judaism and the liturgy. She prepares herself by studying the meaning and commentary before approaching the easel, and continues by chanting or singing the prayer throughout her process. Each image is paired with a translation and interpretation by the artist. For the first time, Marlene is reproducing her work as fine art greeting cards, framed reproductions and giclees.
