Hagbah (Raising the Torah)

Sort by:
Hagbah (Raising the Torah): (lit. "lifting"); the ritual of lifting the Torah scroll and displaying it to the congregation after the Torah reading
By Doug Richter
Artist’s Statement: This is my second painting ever. I thought the image of an outdoor Hagbah was very powerful but could mean different things to different people in very much the same way that the Torah can be interpreted in many different ways.
