Rejoicing with Torah
Rejoicing with the Torah, Spray Paint & Acrylic on Canvas 2013
Original Painting Sold Art Prints available S/M/L
The Torah scroll is majestic and holy, held high in the synagogue for all to see. This large Torah scroll in the painting evokes the prominence of Torah in Jewish Life. The bright colors used here reflect the joy with which we accept the Torah into our lives, as celebrated on the holiday of Simchat Torah, when people dance joyously with the Torah. The Torah here is unfurled, enabling everyone to see its contents. The right side of the Torah scroll is left undefined, representing the concept that the Torah is transparent to all, its words and significance not limited by the scroll, but ever-present in the hearts and minds of the Jewish People.
