The world is alive with the sound of Prayer. At first glance you may only notice the rainbow colored Kotel, meant to remind us that “I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.” Genesis 9:13
The three men in prayer shawls are practically invisible. Because it is not a picture capturing a moment in time, it is a picture that transcends time.
Can stone be alive? It cannot breathe, it is solid, heavy and does not change. Yet, the Kotel - uniquely textured blocks of golden hue - has stood proudly through the centuries. Every prayer, every story, every emotion that has ever existed has been absorbed by this silent witnesses. Is the Kotel not a living witness of our nation’s history?
The Western Wall, The Wailing Wall, the Kotel, are all names for the one remaining wall of the Temple Mount. People flock to it to pray, to celebrate, to mourn; To find or strengthen a spiritual connection with God. Through good times and bad, this one wall of strength has been the silent backbone for Jews throughout the centuries.
God has kept this wall alive, connecting Jews to their heritage and home. Inspired by this - the Kotel, standing proudly and silently - appears often throughout the paintings of Jordana Klein.
