Shabbat

Mordechai Kaplan, a prominent Jewish philosopher taught, “An artist cannot be continually wielding his brush. He must stop at times in his painting to freshen his vision of the object, the meaning of which he wishes to express on his canvas. Living is also an art….The Sabbath represents those moments when we pause in our brushwork to renew our vision of the object. Having done so we take ourselves to our painting with clarified vision and renewed energy.”

We invite you to use the Shabbat Guide to inspire you to create a meaningful and personalized Shabbat experience.

Gary Swimmer: Forgetting
"Forgetting is the human condition that time, events,
changes in cultural perspective, memory’s inherent decay
and mutability all lead to."

Harold Grinspoon: Reunion
His career as an artist did not begin until the age
of 87, when a large cherry tree fell in his yard and inspired
him to transform and explore its form and beauty, mortality
and immortality; the result being a 25 foot tall work of art.
