Judith Margolis, Hod sh'b'Netzah Day 26
COUNTDOWN TO PERFECTION–MEDITATIONS ON THE SEFIROT
March 25 - July 10, 2009
Reception: Wednesday, March 25, 5:30-7:30 PM
From the second day of Passover until the harvest festival of Shavuot there are seven weeks, each of seven days. Jews commemorate these forty-nine days marking the period between the Exodus from Egypt and the giving of the Torah at Sinai. These forty-nine days counted the spiritual ripening of the Jewish people as they themselves matured to receive the Five Books of Moses, the source of all knowledge, the word of God.
Judith Margolis, an Israel-based American artist, makes one-of-a-kind and limited edition artist's books. This exceptional Omer Counter identifies forty-nine personality traits that, taken together, map a mystical journey of change. An examination of kabalistic insights and meditations offers personal inspiration and spiritual discipline.
