Havruta  18×24  Oil on canvas


Each original artwork starts with a subject idea that is meaningful for me personally, followed by daydreaming and a sketch. I painstakingly work on each piece, whether it be for three weeks or more, until each and every detail is right. I use the highest quality paints and cover the painting with a varnish so that it will not crack nor yellow. The canvas is top-grade and hand woven in India, and finished with three coats of primer. The stretcher bars are made of solid wood and are treated to be warp-proof. These pieces are made to last.


Havruta  18×24  Oil on canvas. 

In Jewish tradition it is customary, when learning Talmud or Torah, to do so with a partner, or Havruta (Chavrusa). This has been Jewish tradition for centuries; in the Beit HaMikdash and the study halls of the Yeshivot (schools that focus on Talmud, Halacha and Torah learning). Learning sessions are generally led by a Rabbi after which people pair off into Chavrutot to analyze, argue, dissect and try to discern the details of the passage at hand and its broader meanings; the inside meaning and outside meaning. There are, of course, endless ways to interpret text and by using other references in the Gemara and Mishnah and commentaries, this partnership allows for highly exhilarating Jewish learning!
