      The grandson of rabbis and the son of a Jewish painter, Yom Tov Zapolansky tells of his journey.
      As a youngster in Siberia, Yom Tov studied architecture, then urban design in Moscow.
      He discovered the beauty of Jewish thought only at the age of thirty.
      As a young adult, he read all the Russian translations of Jewish Holy Writings that he could find.
      And he never stopped drawing and painting.
      Now living in Israel, Yom Tov uses his mastery with the paintbrush as a way of interpreting the depths of the Torah, with common themes in his paintings including verses from Ecclesiastes, Psalms, Genesis, images of dancing Rabbis, images of Jerusalem, and hints of the Holy Temple.

      His work is currently on exhibit at Heichal Shlomo in Jerusalem, but can be seen here ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwVZL1rBP3M&feature=related ).
