The walls of Geula Twersky’s Neveh Daniel home are decorated with her artwork, or as Twersky refers to the paintings, “expres- sions of my neshama [soul] and of my name Geula [redemption].” This mother of 10 and recent grandmother, who made aliya from New York with her family seven years ago, says she has been a painter her entire life. The themes in her vivid and lifelike work include Torah, prayer, aliya, the Land of Israel and more.While Twersky has had some success selling her work both in Israel and abroad, she, along with an entire population of Jewish artisans and small business owners in Judea and Samaria, have had to overcome a difﬁcult economic environment to make a living for their families.
