Jewish Art for the Soul

Israel is referred to as a “land of milk and honey” multiple times in the Torah. See the milk jugs on the right and the date palms on the left—the honey Israel is known for refers to date honey. The abundance of all good things comes from natural rivers and wellsprings, as well as water desalinization for which modern Israel is famous.

Shabbat shalom!

"Let the waters swarm a swarming of living creatures, and let fowl fly over the earth, across the expanse of the heavens." (Genesis 1:20)

Doing G‑d's mitzvot creates light in one's eyes.

“And Leah said, ‘Fortune has come.’” (Genesis 30:11)

Leah named the first child of her maidservant Zilpah, Gad: a name that indicates appreciation of good fortune. The soaring eagles draw us into the painting, reminding us of the way we were lead out of Egyptian bondage al kanfei nesharim, “on the wings of eagles.” After hundreds of years of slavery, and decades of travel through the desert, G‑d guided us to our Land. Overlooking the Jordan Valley, the soaring eagles lift us above the valley of our common concerns into an uplifting birds-eye-view of our priorities and an appreciation of what we have. Gad is also the warrior archetype who, expanding on the theme of justice exemplified by Dan, recognizes what is important and fights to protect our beliefs and values.

The purple shadows, cast by the hills of the landscape, reflect the tribe of Gad’s gemstone, amethyst.

"Consider every day your last and you will always be ready with good deeds and repentance." - Talmud Shabbat

This painting was inspired by the warmth of the Chanukah candle lights.

Public menorah lighting in Alexandria, Virginia.


Just as the menorah waits an entire year to be taken out and lit on Chanukah, we wait to light the menorah once again in the third Temple.

The path of life is like a burning candle. When we reach the end, the truth is revealed. Every mitzvah we do, every time we seek G‑d, we step closer and closer to that conclusion.

Creative works exploring life and Judaism composed by a spectrum of Jewish artists.

"The primary talent of an artist is his ability to step away from the externalities of the thing and, disregarding its outer form, gaze into its innerness and perceive its essence, and to be able to convey this in his painting.This is how an artist can serve his Creator." — The Rebbe
