This Passover inspired portrait was painted by Spring Creek Towers’ resident, Yakov Ryaboy. The longtime resident is a Holocaust survivor, who has found an appreciation of life through art. In addition to being an artist, he is a musical composer. He also teaches children in the community how to play the piano. The Spring Creek Sun will feature a profile on Ryaboy in our May 3rd issue in honor of the Days of Remembrance, the nation’s annual commemoration of the Holocaust established by the US Congress, which begins on May 2nd.
