The Lubavitcher Rebbe


Lubavitcher Rebbe

Acrylic on wood with Resin 18×24

This painting portrays the Rebbe in royal colors of blues and gold.with the pasuk Basi L’gani floating between him and the higher worlds.

The pasuk is originally from Shir Hashirim (5:1)

‏באתי לגני אחותי כלה אריתי מורי עם בשמי אכלתי יערי עם דבשי שתיתי ייני עם חלבי אכלו  שתו ושכרו דודים.

(HaShem says:) “ I have come to my garden, my sister, my bride; I have gathered my myrrh with spice, I have eaten my sugar cane with sugar, I have drunk my wine with my milk. Eat, friends, drink and become intoxicated beloved ones.”

The garden, symbolizing a wedding chamber, God is metaphorically inviting us to be close to him.

I first met the Rebbe in September of 1989. I was in school in Manhattan and I had recently been attacked. My roommates family was going to have yichidis (a private visit) with the Rebbe and they suggested I come along and ask for a bracha (blessing). We stood in line to get dollars. He simply said, “bracha v’hatslacha” I was completely  awestruck! Mezmorized! I had never seen a Tzaddik before. Two ladies grabbed me to continue on my way. And so I did. Although I lived in New York only that one year, I went back to visit many more times.
