Artist’s Statement: A woman covers her eyes with her hands and says the blessing over the Shabbat candles. Her hands are shaped like doves to represent welcoming peace and the Shechinah into her house.

The drawing is made using the text of Eishet Chayil, which is traditionally sung at the table on Friday night in praise of the women of the house and the Shechinah. Eishet Chayil also represents the masculine side of G‑d praising His missing feminine half (the Shechinah).

"…She invests herself with strength…she opens her hand to the poor and reaches out to the needy…she is robed in strength and dignity and she smiles at the future…give her credit for the fruit of her labor and let her achievements praise her at the gates..." (Proverbs 31:10-31)

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