Revealed Symphony

April 30, 2017

The sefirot represent the 10 lenses through which G‑d’s characteristics manifest in our world.

Notice the 3 columns. The dark blue on the right connects to the element of water or (expansion). The left column, the red, connects to fire (contraction) and the middle connects to air (harmony). The white strands are the pathways of communication between the sefirot.

May this be the beginning of your journey with the Tree of Life. May this ancient Kabbalistic map guide you to higher truth and reveal a myriad of pathways to connect to the Almighty.

12 Tribes Of Israel: Simeon - The Aggressor

April 5, 2017

“Because G‑d heard.” (Genesis 29:33)

Leah’s second son, Simeon, embodies the quality of hearing. The tribe of Simeon did not receive its own portion in the Land of Israel because of their aggressive role in destroying the city of Shechem (see Genesis 34), an act for which Jacob chastised them on his deathbed. This painting takes us to the portion within Judah’s land in the south that was allocated to Simeon. We are looking out over the crater Machtesh Ramon. The crater is harsh and aggressive with its fortress-like walls, but it is also an opening. In order to stem the harsher aspects of our internal and interpersonal landscapes, we need to create space, to let down our barriers and truly listen. In doing so, we create the possibility for harmonious community (in the foreground), and expansive possibility as we look out into the horizon, into the future.

The reddish-orange of the crater’s sand reflects the warmth of the tribe of Simeon’s gemstone, topaz.

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
