Meet the Artist - Amy Saab



Last Friday night, my church Independent Presbyterian Church attended the Shabbat service at Temple Emanu-El, and afterwards, hosted a reception for their congregation. Twice in our 100 years they opened their church to us, at our beginning and again in the 90's when we had a devastating fire. This centennial celebration for IPC would not have been complete without our sharing our gratitude with our Jewish friends. In honor of our 100 years, Amy Saab was commissioned by her church to paint this lovely view of our sanctuary. Amy also contributed her extraordinary artwork for their Book of Prayer. Our congregation will treasure this painting and the spirit in which it was given. Please visit  her website. She shares her visit to our church in such a beautiful way. Two religions, one wonderful friendship over so many years.

I used to drive a Saab years ago but I never could paint.
