Sculptor Ibram Lassaw (1913-2000) was born in Alexandria, and immigrated with his family to the United States in 1921. He studied sculpture in New York, at the Clay Club and later at the Beaux-Arts Institute of Design. During the 1930s, he started exploring abstract sculpture and was a founding member of the organization American Abstract Artists. His first solo exhibition was held in New York in 1951; after that he exhibited widely, becoming one of the most prominent American sculptors. During the 1950s, he received many commissions from synagogues in the United States, and is considered one of the pioneers of abstract synagogue art.
