Al Nitilat Yadayim – Wash Those Hands!

Do you see hands praying?

Do you see hands washing?

I believe we’re doing a lot of both these days!

I call this piece “Al Nitilat Yadayim” — the blessing said when we wash our hands.

Here’s my attempt at a Ginkgo.

I  hope Frank would’ve liked it.

I’ve created a number of pieces with Beveled Glass but I’ve decided to include a video of this piece.

The life this brings to the piece is stunning.

The Hebrew Day School of Ann Arbor

My children attended, and now my grandchildren attend the HDS.

I created this piece of stained glass art using the school’s logo.

 

I’m looking forward to sharing it with the community at the JCC in Ann Arbor.

Wheat at Sunset


“But I would feed you with the finest of the wheat,

And with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”

Beveled, Iridescent, Star of David


I started with the Beveled Glass Pattern  —  

then it started to grow, and took on a life of it’s own.

Interested in seeing this piece and over a dozen more?  Meet me at the Jewish Community Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and I’ll take you on a tour.  

Until then  —  enjoy my blog.

There are 613 Commandments in the Torah.

Tradition tells us that 10 were etched on the tablets Moses brought down from Mount Sinai.

The Commandments are a Tree of Life for those who follow it’s precepts.
