About the New Torah
City Shul is proud to be acquiring its first Torah scroll, a unique commission fulfilled by six female Torah scribes. They wish it to be graced with an equally unique mantle and binder. Artists who wish to be considered for the Torah Mantle commission should submit:
• A resume that includes recent relevant projects and commission experience.
• 10 to 12 images (jpeg format, min. 150dpi) of relevant work, including both overall views and closer details.
• An accompanying list of the images, indicating title, size, materials, techniques and thought development for each project.
• The deadline for submissions is 5 pm, June 20 2014.
• All applications will be reviewed and the short-listed applicants will be notified by June 30.
• The short list of applicants will be interviewed (in person or by Skype), with the intention of choosing the successful applicant by mid-July.
• A design proposal should be submitted (in person or by Skype) by early September.
• City Shul hopes to receive delivery of the mantle at the end of November 2014.
Applications should be addressed:
• For email (zip image files, please) to: firstname.lastname@example.org
• For hard-copy (with CD of images) to:
