In the fall of 2017, my husband Marty and I joined a group of congregants from Congregation Beth Or in Maple Glen PA on a fascinating 2 week pilgrimage to Poland and Israel. The trip was designed to trace our roots and gain a deeper understanding for our history as Jews.

This collection of stained glass windows was inspired by that pilgrimage, both the deeply depressing images of concentration camps and uplifting images pointing us to a bright future. We begin with the darkness...

Inspiration:

Most Polish Jewish cemeteries were destroyed during World War II. Individual grave sites were unidentifiable and the land was littered with “puzzle” pieces of headstone. After the war, walls were built around the destroyed cemeteries incorporating the damaged headstones, honoring the spirit of those lost.

Details:

This window is a multi layer creation. Many of the glass pieces are etched with the actual text from the walls. Random shapes and thick glass “grout” form the background. Two hands are hand knit with copper core wire. They are three dimensional forming the hand movement for the Priestly Blessing as known in Judaism. You may also see them as Spock’s greeting in Star Trek… Be well and prosper. Now you know where Spock got it from!

Inspiration:

One of the most powerful locations we visited during our pilgrimage to Poland and Israel was the death camp, Majdanek. As we walked past this horrendous space, a gas chamber, I felt the beauty and spirit of all of the lost souls in the shades of blue-green on the far wall. Tears well up as I even think of this site.

Details:

The window measures 22.5″ x 28.5″ including 3/4″ zinc came frame. It is constructed in the copper foil method and includes over 200 individual pieces of glass. Designed and constructed in 2018.

Kielce Poland, the site of a massacre of 42 Jews over the lie told by a Polish child. the boy stayed overnight at a friends house without telling his parents. In the morning he returned and to avoid punishment told his parents and then the police, he was kidnapped by Jews who held him against his will overnight. the townspeople revolted and killed all the Jews in their homes. This was a starting point for pogroms across Poland. Years later the boy admitted he had told a lie and was convicted and set to prison.

This monument sits in a small memorial to the lives lost.

35.5″ tall x 17″ wide

Inspiration:

Stand on the hillside outside of Jerusalem. In one direction you see greenery, lush growth and development. On the other side you see desert. Sand. Desolation. This is the Green Line.

In 1948, as borders were being created between the new state of Israel and Jordan, a green marker was used on the map to designate the border. This line is so apparent today as the land on the Israeli side of the line is irrigated and covered with lush growth and life. The other side of the line is gray and lifeless.

The Green Line is one in a series called “From Darkness into Light”, this stained glass window depicts the lightness and beauty of the green line of cypress trees at the edge of Jerusalem. It represents light and the future that is so bright.

Details:

Stained Glass window is designed and hand crafted in the copper foil method of stained glass creation. The window is framed in a 3/4″ zinc frame which is very strong and sturdy. The solder lines are treated with black patina and polished to a shine. This window is designed to hang in a window, in a pass through space between two rooms or even against a wall. While it doesn’t “need” light shining through, the colors come alive with color when backlit.

Inspiration:

As we traveled through the desert in the south of Israel, our bus stopped near what looked like an outcropping of dried up bushes. We got off the bus – in the middle of nowhere – and our guide led us to a set of stairs carved into the sandy rock behind the bushes. We walked down those stairs into a cistern. Carved out of the rock and desert sand, a cistern would have filled with water after the flooding rains.

The cistern would have been a gathering place for all, providing water year round.

The place to be… and be seen.

Details:

This window measures 16″ x 16″ including a half inch wide zinc frame. Created in the copper foil method of stained glass construction, the solder lines are left in their natural silvery tone and polished to a shine.

The two women represented in the window sport beaded necklaces. Three additional three-dimensional women are hand knit of a copper core wire with nylon coating. The various colors are embedded in that nylon coating.

Inspiration:

As we traveled through the Negev desert in Israel, one of our side trips included a wonderful winery literally growing out of the desert. In addition to grape vines and a variety of fruit trees, the winery was bright with these colorful flowers. We learned that these beautiful flowers grow in the Negev year round. They are called begonia, but very different from the begonia that grow in our gardens. In the U.S. we would call them bougainvillea.

Details:

This window was created in the copper foil method of stained glass construction. The solder lines were left in their natural silvery state and polished to a shine. The window is framed in 1/2″ zinc framing and incorporates wire stamen giving the flowers more of a three dimensional aspect.

Nativ Ha’asara is a settlement literally on the border with Gaza. There we met a local ceramic artist who shared some of her experiences living in the shadow of the conflict.
