About Painted Pomegranates and Needlepoint Rabbis: How Jews Craft Resilience and Create Community (Click here to purchase)

Exploring a contemporary Judaism rich with the textures of family, memory, and fellowship, Jodi Eichler-Levine takes the reader inside a flourishing American Jewish crafting movement. Whether in groups such as the Pomegranate Guild of Judaic Needlework or the Jewish Hearts for Pittsburgh; a home studio; a needlepointing rabbi; or a handkerchief embroidered with the Hebrew words tikkun olam, these everyday acts of creativity are a crucial part of religious life in America. The work of these crafters embodies a vital Judaism that may lie outside traditional notions of Jewishness, but, Eichler-Levine argues that these crafters are nurturing the fortitude, memory, and community of the Jewish people.
