Oil on canvas (original dimensions: 48”x36”)

For many years my brother’s family lived on this street, Misgav Ladach, in the old city of Jerusalem. His home was through the arch on the left. We would occasionally rent the home on the right of the arch just above the street. Here my boys are shown walking down the stairs to the left to Shonei Halachot St., where my parents lived.

The old city of Jerusalem is like no other place on earth. Just breathing you feel it immediately. This is the place where king David bought the land and left it for his son Solomon to build the Temple. The stones in this painting are painted with many colors. The people who come through the old city are so colorful themselves. People come to visit from all over the world. Although I don’t physically live there, a piece of my heart is always there!

The biblical verse incorporated into this painting is:

“הנה מה טוב ומה נעים, שבת אחים גם יחד”

“How pleasant it is when brothers live together.” (Psalm 133)
