here is an art in the
way Betsy Platkin
Teutsch illustrates
her combined concern for the
children of the world and the
welfare of the Jewish people.
The Philadelphia artist
has designed a colorful card
that at once expresses those
concerns as well as helps
celebrate Chanukah. Sales
of the holiday cards, which
feature menorot on the cover
and come in packs of 10,
benefit UNICEF, the United
Nations Children's Fund.
It is the only Chanukah
card offered by UNICEF.
As an artist involved in
Jewish themes — Ms.
Teutsch's illustrations grace
the book of The Jewish Holi-
days; her calligraphy adorns
the new Reconstructionist
prayer book —Ms. Teutsch
feels that her card contri-
butes to a better under-
standing between Jew and
non-Jew.
The artist says, "I thought
it was important that
UNICEF, as an interna-
tional organization, be sen-

who link perceived anti-
Israel attitudes on the part

tion, to UNICEF.
"These two groups are
totally independent of each
other,"says Ms. Teutsch,
who acknowledges UNES-
CO "has a history of anti-
Israel sentiment."
The artist's history with
UNICEF goes back seven
years, when she submitted
her work to the organiza-
tion's New York head-

important that
UNICEF, as an
international
organization, be
sensitive to the
cultural needs of
its Jewish
supporters."

quarters. "They do cards
each year celebrating
Chanukah and the Jewish
New Year. Usually," says
Ms. Teutsch, "the cards use
photographs of ritual
items."
Ms. Teutsch, who also il-
lustrates ketubot, drew
UNICEF officials a dif-
ferent picture of how they
could commemorate the
Jewish holidays. "I wanted
