Painted silk design with hamsa or hand of G!d
I have been painting tallitot, huppahs, and wall hangings for over 25 years. My favorite projects are Bar and Bat Mitzvah tallitot. I also lead silk painting workshops for individuals and groups. Rabbi Rayzel makes special occasion tallitot such as gifts for teachers and to celebrate special life cycle occasions, such as one presented to Pesha by her writing workshop students, seen below in the slideshow. You can also paint your own tallit with your own design.
I also make smaller items like altar cloths, shivitis, word mandalas, and shapes - requiring me to stretch my talents and master new techniques.
