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 in this painting 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 tall. Planted in the house of HaShem (G-d), in the courtyards of our G-d 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)
