  1. The golem (a mythic character from Jewish folklore) is an imaginative choice of subject. Ms. Hacker captures its essence in a playful, original way. Well done.

  2. The Smithsonian? Golem’s contribution preserves the grace and beauty of calligraphy for generations to come. What a genius! Thanks, Tina!

  3. Tina’s poetic depiction of Golem folklore is refreshing and imaginative. The idea that a conjured creature might make frivolous choices with it’s limited existence is hilarious! Wonderful writing and vivid imagery brings this Golem to life.

  4. Interesting concept! I believe the Golem is still hising out in that synagogue in Prague. He should definitely have tattoos.
