To love a painting is to feel that this presence is… not an object but a voice.

Lighting the Menorah
Gretty Rubenstien Rotman
“I am the Lord; I have called you in righteousness;
I will take you by the hand and keep you;
I will you as a covenant for the people,
a light for the nations,
to open the eyes that are blind,
to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon,
from the prison those who sit in darkness.”
~ Isaiah 42: 6-7 ~
I saw this painting, at the Belz Museum of Asian and Judaic Art, in Memphis, Tennessee. I instantly fell in love with the sheer joy, the artist captured; and it seemed appropriate to share it with you this week, given there is so much to celebrate! Mazel tov!
Art can never exist without naked beauty displaced.
