Rabbi Abraham Yitzhak Kook, “Rav Kook” 1865-1935. 9×14 Oil on board


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.

Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook, “Rav Kook” is nothing short of a giant in Judaism. Most significant about him was his intense personal spirituality and his originality in thought. He engrossed himself in Torah and Talmud learning and was an expert in both Halacha and Kabbalah. He was devoted to traditional Jewish Orthodoxy, but embraced the modern world as well. After humble beginnings as a Rabbi, he later became the first Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem and opened a yeshiva there as well. His teachings remain rominent for Jews all over the world.
