Creative Soul’s 4th Annual Celebration of Creativity   
October 12 - November 2, 2014   The Creative Soul Gallery, NY
Especially happy to be in the Creative SouGallery during the High Holidays
because this is Z'man Simchateinu, Season of our JOY.

Every year I love to photograph pomegranates/rimonim.
I was thrilled to discover the full pomegranate hanging with a Magen Dovid from the tree.

My art has been exhibited with Creative Soul, and last year I was their Featured Artist Interview.

Breed Street Shul was my paternal grandfather's, z"l, synagogue more than 50 years ago.
