Hebrica was honored to be able to create the awards for the inaugural Glimmer Bay Area Gala for Keshet, the organization working for the full equality and inclusion of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Jews in Jewish life.
Two awards were commissioned: the Rosh Pinah Award, presented to Martin Tannenbaum, and the Landres Courage for Dignity Award, presented to Jennifer Gorovitz and Ayala Katz.
Based on Psalm 118:22 ~ The stone rejected by the builder becomes the cornerstone.
Talmud (Shevuot 39a) ~ All Israel is responsible for each other.
The creative inspiration for Hebrica Judaic Art has always been a design to connect Jews to their Judaism and to each other. That means all Jews, in all places and in every walk of life, no exceptions. If we are to be "a light unto the nations" and practice tikkun olam, repairing the world, we must be entirely together in this mission, the whole tribe. Listen to what Martin Tannenbaum, Rosh Pinah Award recipient, has to say about this:
