Ewa Gordon

Graphic art designer, calligrapher, Hebrew language translator of classical Jewish religious texts from Hebrew to Polish.

She finished High School of Art and five years study at Hebrew Language Department of The Warsaw University. She works as a lecturer and teacher of Classical Hebrew Grammar, Jewish Literature and Art and Hebrew Calligraphy in cooperation with Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow, The Ronald S. Lauder Foundation, "Austeria" Publishing House and JCC Krakow.

In 2019 she published the first Polish textbook for Hebrew calligraphy, along with a translation of Keset Hasofer – The Inkstand of the Scribe, a legal handbook for scribes, the classical work written by Rabbi Shlomo Ganzfried in 1835.

Works of Ewa Gordon are her own ideas based on the traditional rules of Hebrew calligraphy. She uses texts from Tanach, Talmud, Jewish prayer book and other Jewish sources. The pictures are made using traditional calligraphic pen, with acrylic paint on fiberboard or inks on paper. Her works are in private collections in England, U.S.A., Israel and Poland.
