Mi Yodeah (Who Knows?) 2017
Each print 8" x 11"

The song “Who Knows?” (Mi Yodeah in Hebrew), is one of the last sung in a traditional Passover seder (a ritual meal of prayers, songs and discussion celebrating the freedom of the Jews from slavery). In this series of prints inspired by the song, I have assigned a botanical element to thirteen important tenets of Judaism each of which is a cumulative stanza in the song. The song is fun and but still imparts lessons for the children and adults at the table.
