"Who's At the Wall?  or ​

Finally, Living Free of Anti-Semitism... in Our Homeland"

The importance of a Jewish homeland is depicted by presenting the fascinating lives and experiences of four prominent Israelis who came to Israel during different decades, from different countries where each fled anti-Semitism, discrimination, and persecution. The painting shows them now living in Israel, praying at the Kotel, and enjoying equal rights, self-determination, and freedom from government-sponsored and community-supported anti-Semitism.

"Longing for Peace....1, 2, 3, 4, 5x..."

This dove symbolizes Israel's yearning for peace.  The years painted along the bottom represent some of Israel's many actions that clearly demonstrate her desire for peace.  The dates also represent times the Arabs / Palestinians rejected both peace and the opportunity to have a state of their own. 

            

"From Israel With Love" 

​                   

This whimsical papercut collage depicts the generosity and kindness of the many Israelis involved in the "Wheelchairs of Hope" initiative, which was praised by the U.N. Israeli volunteer engineers, occupational therapists, designers, and experts in plastics, in conjunction with Alyn Pediatric Rehabilitation Hospital in Jerusalem, developed an improved, light weight plastic, supportive, children’s wheelchair.  Israel is producing and donating these colorful kid-friendly wheelchairs to children without mobility from families with limited financial resources so they can become mobile, attend school, and increase their independence.  Israel has already donated tens of thousands to children in need in countries in Central and South America, Africa, Asia and the Middle East.  It is estimated that there are 5 million needy children around the world with mobility disabilities, and Israel's goal to manufacture and donate wheelchairs to every one of them. 






"100 Hearts"

​ A hundred hearts are too few to hold all the love I feel for you.

מאה לבבות לא מספיקים מכדי להחזיק את האהבה שאני מרגישה כלפיך

This painting was inspired by King Solomon's passionate lyrical poetry in the "Song of ​Song." 

Jewish tradition reads the verses of love between a woman and man as 

an allegory of the relationship between G-d and Israel.​
