“Ushpizin” (2002/2014) by Galia Goodman, of Durham, NC, honors 7 patriarchs whose spirits we invite to visit us in the sukkah: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Aaron, & David. The original work is a traditional papercut with ink overlay.
Galia Goodman has been a working artist and calligrapher for over 25 years. Self-taught, her work now hangs in homes, synagogues, churches, and universities around the world. She specializes in Judaica, notably Ketubot, and her style is eclectic, ranging from traditional papercut to brilliantly-colored abstract collage. Galia tells us, “My favorite collaborations are the banners I have created for the Sukkah Project®”.
