The Book of Judith is a contemporary illuminated manuscript that tells the ancient, inspiring story of Judith, a woman of valor, who single handedly saves her small town from Assyrian military take-over and religious oppression. It chronicles the historic struggle for religious freedom in a contemporary voice while echoing the great illuminated manuscripts that flourished in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. This project is a product of collaboration with eminent Hebrew scholar Everett Fox, ideas from rabbis and spiritual teachers and the work of a team of brilliant and committed international intern artists representing all faiths and ethnicities, including Cuban-Haitian and Vietnamese-American. Countries of origin include Canada, Israel, Ireland, Russia, Singapore, Slovenia, and the U.S.

HANUKKAH ILLUMINATED: A Book of Days is the first modern illuminated and handwritten story of Hanukkah. A devotional work of art that combines illuminated paintings with unique texts, Hanukkah Illuminated speaks in a contemporary voice while echoing the great illuminated paintings which flourished in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
This work presents in English the vibrant tradition of Hebrew illumination for an audience of all ages and all faiths. The story by Everett Fox (author of The Schocken Bible and Special Consultant to The Prince of Egypt) and the illuminated art progress from darkness to light as Hanukkah Illuminated celebrates the richness of the holiday and its symbols. An ancient story of the search for redemption, Hanukkah Illuminated unites historic Israels experience of natural and cultural worlds in its search for redemption. Hanukkah Illuminated culminates in a vision of harmony and peace, in which the world is infused with transcendent light.
Upon completion, Hanukkah Illuminated: A Book of Days will include thirty-eight 17 x 23-inch original individual gold-illuminated paintings on classic manuscript vellum with Master Calligraphy by Karen Gorst. The text for each of Hanukkahs eight nights will present biblical verse about light as it expresses in art and calligraphy the dual realms of nature and culture.
