SONG OF SONGS
As Pesach begins Wednesday evening, I posted this week's Parsha blurb over at Radical Torah. Theme: Redemption. Enjoy!
Shir Ha-Shirim/Song of Solomon Copyright A. Barclay. Lightfast ink & Liquitex on hand made floral paper.
The above piece was commissioned as a wedding gift. The chatan & kallah's (groom's & bride's) names are contained within 2 concentric mageyn Davids (stars or shields of David) & surrounded by letters spelling Ha-Shekhinah, the feminine, Divine in-dwelling presence of G@d. The outer ring contains the following words from Shir Ha-Shirim: "For the long wet months are past, the rains have fed the earth & left it bright with blossoms: Birds wing low in the sky, dove & songbird singing in the open air above."
Unity has a redemptive quality. & for Jews this is Redemption Week. Big time.
