What happens when you combine a passion for embroidery, Jewish text, math and graph paper?
Rachel Braun explores how Jewish texts can be embroidered—literally and figuratively—in original needlecraft designs. Braun is a Torah chanter, synagogue service leader, Jewish educator, and high school math and statistics teacher. Her talents—artistic, spiritual, and mathematical—come together in her book, “Embroidery and Sacred Text: New Designs in Jewish Needlework” (Bookbaby, 2017). Her website is rachelbraun.net.
