The Moment It's Shabbat

That moment.

A motion.
A whispered prayer.
A moment so brief but most unique.

Enveloped with Love

October 24, 2018

I painted this while pregnant with my second child. I wanted to remember the holiness of pregnancy. Judaism teaches that while the baby is in its mother’s womb, an angel teaches them the entire Torah. Written is the first verse of the Torah, and the beginning of Tanya, where it teaches that each soul, before descending to earth, promises to be righteous. An abstract heart envelopes the baby symbolizing the love between baby, mother, and G‑d.

Jewish Blessing on the Home

October 3, 2018

May your home be the place
A sanctuary of everlasting peace
Where tranquility resides
and joy dwells.
In the shadow of all this,
The voice of the Torah will rise.
In your home; in this corner
we will find the Shechinah - the Divine presence of G‑d.

Jewish Blessing on the Home symbolizes the many aspects that are essential to creating a welcoming, loving, and joyful home. The warmth emanating from the Shabbat candles in the center of the home illuminates a chamsah, placed to ward off the evil eye. A pomegranate inside the chamsah contains the words of the Hebrew blessing, and represents the abundant mitzvoth that will be a foundation of prosperity and health.

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
