Born in Montreal, Canada, Emmanuel has always had a knack for design. It naturally started with his dear mother Esther. Esther, loved drawing and turned that love into a profession, sketching fashion designs and eventually designing her own successful clothing brand. Growing up and being around his mother’s atelier at such a young age, Emmanuel got to see a lot of aspects of design, from sketching, to fabrics to sewing. His first love was drawing, however he took a strong liking to constructing, putting pieces together and coming out with a finished product. 

He went on to study in Yeshiva for 3 years, and then learnt Torah Scribing (writing tefilin, mezouzot, sefer Torah) at a renowned school in Bnei Brak.  All the while leaving the art in him, kinda dormant…

After moving to Tzfat, Israel as a newlywed, Emmanuel opened up a boutique restaurant, but his passion pulled him to Art eventually. Living in a city with so many galleries and so many artist he felt it was his calling to at least try his hand in the industry. He started from the ground up, working in different galleries, each gallery specializing in some form of art or another. He eventually opened his first gallery with his wife, Hadas, and the dream just began.

Not long after opening his first gallery, he started designing sculptures with the famed sculptor Wil Grant. They worked hand in hand in creating what is now the Emmanuel Judaica sculpture collections, adding new pieces every few months.

From then on, Emmanuel found himself immersed in creating and in creation mode. He has since gone to explore his brush strokes and painting skills and has found another love, painting.

The first few years of operating the gallery and being exposed to so many artists and so many different types of art, its really ignited the love for creating in Emmanuel.
