HIGHLAND PARK – North Suburban Synagogue Beth El will host nationally renowned artist Mordechai Rosenstein April 6-10, 2016.
The Hebrew alphabet is the essence of the art of Mordechai Rosenstein. “The flowing forms of the letters have been an inspiration to me since my youth,” explained Rosenstein of Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, whose love of the flowing forms of letters is evident in every piece he creates. His vibrant shapes and colors enhance synagogue interiors, tapestries, paintings, murals, and silk screen prints.
Rosenstein has given a contemporary meaning to the art of Hebrew calligraphy and his works have been presented to prominent people including President George Bush, President Yitzhak Shamir, Elie Weisel, Chaim Potok, the Pope and many others throughout the world.

Various presentations, lectures, and workshops are planned with a special “Painting & Pinot” event on Thursday, April 7 at 7:45 p.m. With the guidance of Mordechai Rosenstein, participants will create their own art based on the Hebrew alphabet.
The cost is $18 for Beth El members and $25 for non-members and includes wine, refreshments, and all supplies. No artistic experience required! RSVP to Marcie Eskin at [email protected] or call 847-926-7903.
