Visited the home of Birgitta Yavari-Ilan in Yemen Moshe, Jerusalem, 2009.  This woman’s paintings are exquisite and so are her stories. http://birgittayavariilan.wordpress.com/

Motke Blum, Jewish Artist

My friends and I had the privilege of meeting Motke Blum in Jerusalem one day, as we visited his shop down in the Artist area outside of the Old City of Jerusalem.  His humble spirit and great artistry were evident as we spent time with him.
