Painter and book artist Judith Margolis – whose solo exhibition “Roots in the Sky” is showing at the Miklat Le’omanut Gallery in the Makor Baruch neighborhood – has made criss-crossing journeys throughout her life, both geographically and spiritually.From the US East Coast, she moved west and joined the counterculture movement in the 1960s, living on the Magic Forest Farm in Oregon. She later became observant, leading an Orthodox Jewish life in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Israel. And for the last 10 years, since leaving Orthodoxy, she has been slowly finding a balance between everything she has gained from her religious life and a retrieval of the freedoms that she believes are important for her art.
