The New Sacred: Ritual Textiles by Rachel Kanter

Rachel Kanter uses fiber and quilting techniques to create tallit and other pieces reflecting her exploration of Jewish ritual objects. Every tallit Rachel Kanter sews is more than a prayer shawl. “I like to study text when I work,” she said. “Each piece is usually a
commentary on the text — a midrash, really,” on women’s lives.

Philadelphia Museum of Jewish Art is one of the venues for Fiber Philadelphia 2012, an international biennial and regional festival for innovative fiber/textile art.
