Reflecting The Spirit Of Elul, In Art

Israeli artist Ya’akov Boussidan’s latest study for stained glass windows soars with his lifelong passion for original calligraphy and his fascination with the “Song of Songs.” Exploring the theme of creation, this first study is naturally linked to Elul, the Hebrew month that augurs Rosh Hashanah, “the birth of the world.”  According to rabbinic tradition, Elul is an acrostic for the verse “I am to my beloved and my beloved is to me.”  (Song of Songs, 6:3).
