Marilyn Hirsch

(1944 - 1988)

Born in Chicago and trained as a historian of Indian and Buddhist art, Hirsch taught at Cooper Union and at the New York University Institute of Fine Arts.  She puts her artistic talents to work in illustrating over thirty children's books, mostly on Jewish themes, and often relied on historical research to provide the backdrop for each story of a particular holiday or past event.  Her books continue to be used by Jewish educators and loved by children everywhere.
