I will place My dwelling in your midst, and My Spirit will not reject you; I will walk among you and be your G‑d, and you will be My people. I am the L‑rd, your G‑d, who took you out of the land of Egypt . . . Leviticus 26:11–13)

In this closing chapter of Leviticus, G‑d promises to walk among His people, bringing them to the Promised Land and the eventual building of the Temple in Jerusalem. The painting is permeated with golden light that illuminates a pathway towards the sanctuary beyond purple mountains. The deep blue-violet shades enhance the feeling of majesty and expansiveness. In contrast, the vertical lines suggest the sanctuary, and heighten our sense of elation and spiritual elevation. Embraced by a warm glowing of color, the people move toward the gateway of our ultimate dream—a House of prayer for all peoples.
