How heartwarming it was to receive over a dozen responses to my request for ketubah text information from our AGJA artists today. To have my question receive so many knowledgable and gracious responses from real experts is not only a blessing; it is testimony to the benefit of belonging to our Guild.

Ten years ago, I received an email that changed my life. It began like this, “I saw your work on the Guild of American Judaic Art website and I wondered if you would be interested in creating a piece of artwork for our Synagogue?” That email and subsequent commissions from that first project, opened up a new direction to my Judaic art career. I have the AGJA to thank for that. I’ve enjoyed 10 years of steady commissions through word of mouth, good references and the help of many kind and generous people… Membership in the Guild has offered me a sense of belonging to a community of other professional artists who generously share ideas and opportunities. I encourage all of the present members to renew their memberships and find other professionals with a love of Jewish Art to join as well. I believe the more you share your art, the more joy and success will come back to you.
