“I will take you...to a land flowing with milk and honey.” ~Exodus 3:17
In Milk and Honey, the promise of what Jerusalem - Ir Shalem - City of Peace - is in her heart, comes alive. Look carefully, and you will find hints of the seven species of the Holy Land interspersed throughout the painting, representing the rich bounty that the Land of Israel holds in her potential and in her reality.
The beauty of Jerusalem is readily apparent in the words of the Bible and the descriptions of the Prophets. Although if viewed through newspaper headlines, she may seem far from those descriptions, here, Shabbat candles represent the possibilities for peace.
In the years I’ve lived in Israel, I’ve grown to appreciate the richness of Jerusalem for all that it holds. She is still, in so many ways, the center of the world, as depicted in Ancient Roman maps. The challenges of today brings out the humanity of those who walk the streets of Jerusalem: their joys, their passions, their pain. The depth of Jerusalem brings out the depth of the people who live and visit her.
