Artist Talk

Martin Lemelman has illustrated over 30 books and his work has been published in magazines ranging from the New York Times Book Review to Sesame Street Magazine. He is the illustrator of the revised edition of The Tattooed Torah (1994) by Marvell Ginsburg, and completed over 100 paintings for the 2021 animated film. Lemelman’s latest graphic novel, The Miracle Seed (2023), is the thrilling true story of an ancient plant – the Judean date palm – wonderfully reborn in the modern era through the hard work of two Israeli scientists. He is also the author of two award winning graphic memoirs: Mendel’s Daughter (2006) and Two Cents Plain: My Brooklyn Boyhood (2010). Original artwork from all four of these books is now on display in the Rissman Kol Ami Museum. Meet the artist during a special Tu B’Shevat reception at 7:00 pm and a presentation after evening Minyan at 7:45 pm.
