Rabbi Grafman Endowment Fund For Temple Emanu-El, Birmingham, AB

A ten-year annual commission that began with the creation of a luxury binding with silver and brass ornamentation and fine leather binding to which was added Benefactor, Donor and Contributor pages each year. The commission evolved, after 2008, into a one-time corresponding donor art on a framed matt to which the names are changed out yearly.
