Psalms

King David’s Psalms show how whatever situation or state we find ourselves in, we can find harmony by remaining steadfast in closeness to G-d. This message is encapsulated in a beautiful rendering of King David’s harp, comprised of the first thirty chapters of Psalms. The first chapter of Psalms begins at the upper right hand corner. The text then continues line by line. The 23rd Psalm of David begins with the darkened word at the bottom of the 2nd string and continues along the third string.

Praise

So great is the praise that we desire to give to the L-rd that voice alone cannot suffice.  The coupling of King David’s Psalms with a violin unfetters our natural bounds and carries our song to the heavens. This art piece contains selected Psalms, chapters one thru twenty-three.

Ruth - Image

Ruth

The entire text of the Book of Ruth is used to illustrate the scene of Ruth modestly collecting gleanings in the field; the scene that so endeared her to Boaz. The text begins at the top of her head. The first time the name "Ruth" appears in the text is above her forehead; it is darkened. Her tireless devotion is depicted with the verse "Where you go, I will go... your people are my people and your G-d is my G-d" written in the picture over her heart. The trim on her dress forms the conclusion of the text, ending with the word "David".

Song of Songs

King Solomon described an insurmountable love between G-d and his beloved that reminds us that no matter how circumstance may strain our lives, He cherishes us as His “rose among thorns,” and we can rightfully remain faithful that His love for us is as strong as ever. This message is encapsulated here in a delicate rose made from the whole of Song of Songs.

Kohelet (Ecclesiastes)

King Solomon offers guidance about wisely using time to us in Kohelet, the complete text of which comprises the hourglass in this picture. The text starts at the upper right hand corner. The word "Kohelet" is darkened. A key phrase from the text is darkened and can be found seven lines down from the top of the hourglass: "There is nothing new under the sun." There are 28 times mentioned in the text. 14 positive ("a time to live...") and 14 negative ("a time to die..."). The negative times are written in the sand which has just fallen in the hourglass. The positive times are just about to fall.

Eichah - Image

Eichah (Lamentations)

The picture, made of the entire text of Jeremiah’s Eichah, depicts a man, a kind of “everyman” praying against the Western Wall. The pillars in the picture represent Jeremiah’s vision that one day the Jewish people will return to Israel and will rebuild Jerusalem. The pillars are set back from the wall to represent the idea that a man close to tragedy just sees doom. It is only when he steps back and gets a wider perspective that hope and optimism begin to find its way in.

Havdalah  - Candle

The Havdalah candle is central to the Havdalah service, and is drawn in this picture using the text of the entire service. The color scheme represents the idea, "to make a distinction between light and darkness, holiness and mundane.” The drips of wax on the stately candle represent “reasonable man”: the sweat of one who labors to make a correct choice, who is willing to stand precisely in the middle, as he weighs the pros and cons.

Havdalah – Spice-box

Excerpt from ‘Remarks from the Artist’

“…the spice-box is one of the traditional symbols of the Havdalah service. May the sweet smell of the Sabbath linger in our experience and help us to remember the distinction between right and wrong, good and evil.”
