David Moss, noted artist and illuminator, will be an artist-in-residence for a week this summer. Originally from the US, David lives and works in Israel, where he describes himself as an “illuminator, animator and transformer of Jewish texts, objects, spaces and souls.” David Moss began his artistic career by reinventing the art of the illuminated Jewish wedding contract (ketubah). He has created the famous Moss Haggadah, considered by some to be the finest original Haggadah, as well as many other expressive works in a variety of media which capture and reflect Jewish essence and experience.
Moss has been artist-in-residence in many educational settings. A veteran artist-in-residence at several Ramah camps, Camp Ramah in the Berkshires is thrilled to welcome him to Wingdale, where he looks forward to involve campers in the creative, artistic process.
