GEVURAH sh b'HOD
Joy's silk painted tallit,
worn in prayer at Kibbutz Lotan.
Joy Krauthammer and daughter Aviva wrapped in their prayer garments
filled with hand-woven ribbons based on colors of Sephirot and Days of Creation, according to Reb Zalman Schachter-Shalomi.
Designed and tied by Joy, and woven by Ruth Zitch.
The talleisim are created and photographed and organized
in energy of Gevurah sh b'Hod.
During closing ceremony of Lev Eisha women at Wagner Women retreat, held at Brandeis-Bardin in Simi Valley, CA, participants brought their talleisim to me to photograph.
Here is the collage of women's prayer shawls, now a cover photo on Lev Eisha website.
Talleisim have been created in Hiddur Mitzvah/beautification of ritual.
These talleisim have been hand-made by wearers, commissioned and/or purchased from artists or at museums and shuls.
Two of mine are on middle and far lower left (ribbon woven, and ribbon embellished), and also 3rd from left on bottom (painted Tree of Life).
Commissioned and painted by silk artist Smadar Knobler.
