Holy Brother


Oil on canvas with wood (original dimensions: 24.5”x12.75”)

My brother, a very unique and special person, is portrayed here wearing a Tallis and Tefillin (Phylacteries) and he is smiling. Smiling is one of the most important things a person can do as it demonstrates faith in G-d.

The biblical verse is:

“צדיק כתמר יפרח כארז בלבנון ישגה שתולים בבית ה׳ בחצרות אלקינו יפריחו עוד ינובון בשיבה דשנים ורעננים יהיו להגיד כי ישר ה׳ צורי ולא עולתה בו”

“A righteous man will flourish like a date palm, like a Cedar in Lebanon he will grow tongue. Planted in the house of Hashem, in the courtyards of our God, they will flourish. They will still be fruitful in old age, vigorous and fresh they will be – to declare that Hashem is just, my Rock in whom there is no wrong.” (Psalm 92)
