Sara Harwin and Illuminated Letters were featured as the cover story in the February 2014 edition of the magazine, Oregon Jewish Life.

Excerpt from article:
Sara created the exhibit “to be a visual entry point to Judaism.” The project presents 18 core concepts of Judaism through an artistic lens. A Judaic artist whose ceremonial and ritual artwork is used in synagogues and homes across Oregon and around the country, Sara knows the impact art can have on understanding and emotions.

“This project is something I am presenting to the Jewish world at large in the hope people will find it useful and inspirational and a way of connecting,” she says. “I want to bring people to a deeper understanding and engagement in Judaism.”
