Judy Levin has been creating Judaica, wearable art, Sukkah banners, heirloom-quality quilts and special commissions for more than 20 years. She has developed a contemporary, organic style which incorporates many surface design techniques into each piece. Her unique Torah covers, bima covers and other textile pieces are prized for their workmanship and creativity.
Originally from South Africa, Judy and her family called Memphis, Tennessee home for 38 years. After teaching art at the Margolin Hebrew Academy/Feinstone Yeshiva of the South for 18 years, she left to pursue her own creative endeavors on a full-time basis. She continues to teach--conducting workshops ranging from sewing to creative journaling--to both children and adults.
Judy received her B.A. in Art History from the University of Memphis, and has since continued building her skills in both formal and informal settings. She is the mother of two grown daughters who both live in Israel.
In 2014, Judy and her husband Wolfe realized a lifelong dream when they made aliyah (moved to Israel). They have settled in the southern city of Beer Sheva, where Judy has begun receiving synagogue commissions.
