Rabbi Linda makes unique works of Hebrew calligraphic art on deerskin parchment.  She discovered, when processing parchment for the Community Torah Project, that not every deerskin can produce parchment suitable for a Torah scroll, due to holes, stains, flaws and blemishes in the hide.

The first solo exhibition of her artwork was “Sacred Scraps” at the Spring St Gallery in Saratoga Springs, New York, June 8-Aug 8, 2014. This program received support from Saratoga Arts through its Saratoga Program for the Arts Funding, which was made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Click to view photos and press reports of the “Sacred Scraps” exhibit.
