Many times during their long and distinguished history, the Jewish people have adopted the elements of other cultures in the pursuit of their own concepts and visions. An example of this inclination is illustrated by the paper-folding (origami) representations of objects of Jewish significance. This book presents 24 Jewish money folds, including the Torah Scroll, Shofar, Menorah, four different Stars of David, Crown, Cantor's Cap, Sabbath bride, Chai, Spice Box, Wine Bottle, Kiddush Cup, Ten Commandments Tablets, Dreidl, Latke Spatula, Burning Bush, Jerusalem Architecture, Kashrut Symbol, and Hamsa. The folding steps are prefaced by large, clear photographic detail and brief explanations about the special significance of the models. A section at the end of the book summarizes some folklore concerning alleged Jewish symbolism on a $1 bill.Biografía del autor:
