Jewish Feasts 2

The Fall Feasts are give an exact blueprint of God’s redemption plan with his people and through them, with the whole world. Starting to learn about these old yet actual festivals, I made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, in my own studio. Immersed in Jewish literature, music and the Mahzor I travelled through history, impressed and touched by the suffering, hope and joy of the Jewish people, who succeeded to maintain their identity by keeping these festivals.
