With tears in my eyes

Thank you AISH for sharing such a special story. As a self taught artist who explores the depth of Torah through art, I totally relate.

Gifted artist with Taste

It was moving to read about his talent and humility. Beautiful art and a serious mench. May he live to 120 and keep painting from his heart!
