A Bat Mitzvah Gift — For a Very Special Lady
Looking for that Special Gift? — Look No Farther than Ron’s Glass!
Finally I get to post these pieces of glass I created for the Beth Israel 100th Anniversary Gala last night. A special Thank You to Pam Landau and Jeff Bernstein for all the work you did to make the Entire Year such a success.
I took The Iconic LOVE Piece ( I obviously used the iconic Hebrew Ahavah Piece…),
and added a little “flair’.
If you’re interested in viewing this piece, and about 2 dozen more,
check out the Ann Arbor JCC, or the Hebrew Day School,
or Beth Israel Congregation, or the Jewish Family Service of Washtenaw County.
I Love how different this piece looks in my window – in the daylight, and in my window – at night.
This Masterpiece is proudly displayed in the dining room of Matt Kaplan and Caroline Helton. It represents one of the Seven Species.
The Seven Species are seven types of fruits and grains enumerated in the Hebrew Bibleas being special products of the Land of Israel. Jewish tradition teaches that the pomegranate is a symbol for righteousness, because it is said to have 613 seeds which corresponds with the 613 mitzvot or commandments of the Torah. The pomegranate is one of the few images which appear on ancient coins of Judea as a holy symbol, and today many Torah scrolls are stored while not in use with a pair of decorative hollow silver “pomegranates” (rimmonim) placed over the two upper scroll handles. Some Jewish scholars believe that it was the pomegranate that was the forbidden fruit of the Garden of Eden.
