Commissioned by the Reconstructing Judaism movement for the "B'yachad" convention of 2022, this Tree of Life Wall Hanging is art as midrash! The assignment was to portray the Hebrew letter "tav" in whatever manner we wished (with certain height and circumference specs). The tree at the center of the design is based upon a tree which grows in my neighborhood (my daughters used to call it "The gnarly, twisty tree). At the heart of the tree is the letter mentioned above, "tav", which is both the last letter of the word "Emet", truth, and the first letter of the word "Torah". The original Torah was said to have been written with black fire upon white fire, and directly by the Divine Being. Here, that concept is represented by black-on-white beading. This is a OOAK (one of a kind) piece. Hanging materials not included. The price includes a $50 donation to HIAS for Ukraine relief efforts. How will you know? I'll send you a copy of the letter HIAS sends me!
