Dov Lederberg grew up in the Philadelphia area (Central HS 211) and began his involvement in the arts at Haverford College and the Columbia University Graduate School of Fine Arts, concentrating on the experimental film and became an active film-maker within The New American Underground. In the late Sixties Dov studied in yeshivas in NYC and Israel. Between 1970 and 1994 he worked as an independent film director, mainly for Israel Television, making documentary and educational films. Since 1983 Dov has been deeply involved in using new art mediums and techniques to express the subtle ideas of Jewish mystical teachings and meditation.
His current work is involved with kabbalah mandalas and visual paradigms for dialogue, triptychs and wax congealings, essentially creating an evocative 'gestalt' which invites the viewer's active interaction and interpretation. His paintings and video art are exhibited in museums and galleries in the United States and Israel. Dov lives in Tzfat and Jerusalem but makes frequent trips abroad for exhibitions and lectures.
Only a small number of Dov's numerous works are exhibited in this site, the public is invited to view his expanded site at
