Jewish papercuts - popular in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries among Jewish communities in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East - represent a fascinating and beautiful form of traditional folk art. At its height, the art of papercutting became an integral part of the customs and rituals of the Jewish holidays and lifecycle.
Marta Golab (born 1956), a contemporary Polish artist, is among those who are helping to revive this unique tradition. What started out as an artistic adventure has become a tribute to the vanished Jewish community of Krakow.
Organized by Taube Foundation for Jewish Life and Culture, special acknowledgements to Mr. Alex Lauterbach and the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Los Angeles.
