Alef Betty: Modern Hebrew Arts

Who is Alef Betty?

Alef Betty is all the women in my family, and all the women in yours. This project reimagines the expressions of Jewish identity we grew up with. It pays tribute to where we come from, and aims to expand our cultural inheritance in its own small way.
