Shoshannah Brombacher studied ancient Near Eastern studies and codicology in Leyden (Holland), with her Ph.D. specializing in the medieval Hebrew poetry of the Amsterdam Sephardic-Portuguese community.

She painted from an early age, inspired by chassidic stories and Chagall works on her father’s bookshelves.

Artist’s Statement: Shalom! I made this drawing during the week of Chanukah, the week of light in which we celebrate the victory of Torah values over the forces of evil. Even if things look difficult we light our candles, and the light grows with one cand...
Artist’s Statement: This drawing is a tribute to nature. The rabbi walks with his students between the trees in Israel and tells his students to respect them, and not to pluck a leaf without thinking.
