- Haftorah of Yonah
- This work is an artist's edition of the Book of Jonah, one of the twelve later or minor Prophets in the Hebrew Bible. In the Jewish tradition, a Haftarah is a reading from the prophets, which takes place on the Sabbath, festivals, and holy days. With its emphasis on the theme of repentance, the Book of Jonah has become a traditional part of the synagogue service on the holiest day in the Hebrew calendar, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. This Haftarah was created with original etchings and a commentary by Mordechai Beck and Hebrew calligraphy by David Moss. The book is on handmade Abaca paper produced for this edition at the Tut-Neyar Paper Mill, Zichron Ya'akov, Israel. The text was printed on an 1886 Albion handpress at the Jerusalem Print Workshop.
