Artist’s Statement: In this special healing artwork, I wrote the Yedid Nefesh song—composed by Rabbi Elazar ben Moshe Azikri, and “Ana el-na refa na la…”—an ancient Jewish healing prayer.

Rabbi Elazar ben Moshe Azikri was a student of Rabbi Isaac Luria (also known as "The Ari," "Ari-Hakadosh," or "Arizal). Rabbi Azikri expresses the importance of expressing one’s love of the Divine through song. His song Yedid Nefesh is sung by many Jewish communities around the world on Friday nights and Shabbat afternoons.

The second prayer was said by Moses for his sister Miriam in the desert.

This artwork brings the radiance of healing to its surroundings.
