Michel Schwartz

Michel Schwartz is an American-born Jewish artist. He was born in New York in 1926 to a well-known rabbinical family. His Father’s grandfather, Rabbi Cohen Michelle, who came to Jerusalem in 1832, was one of the first settlers in the “Nahalat Shiv'a” neighborhood and was also the founder of the first Jewish newspapers in Jerusalem. Schwartz was educated in a yeshiva in New York. His teachers recognized his talent at an early age, and enrolled him in an art and design school when he was 13. The Hebrew Alphabet which also means in Hebrew “letters of wisdom” express for Schwartz the secret of Jewish survival over generations. His works are displayed in famous sites around the world, including the White House, the official President's Residence, the Israeli Knesset, City Halll in Jerusalem Municipality and more.
