Wolpert's career began in with the Bauhaus in Germany. He fled the Nazi years to Mandate Palestine where he became Professor of Metalwork at the New Bezalel School for Arts and Crafts in Jerusalem. In 1956 he accepted an offer to direct the Tobe Pascher Workshop in New York where he completed his career. Modernism has had a dubius influence on Jewish sacred architecture and furnishings, but Wolpert represents that influence at its best.
