MY TAPESTRIES: 36 SERIES > The Illuminated Shlep
THE ILLUMINATED SHLEP
– Halakhah as a Fountainous Way
I chose to weave this small series on the major, defining, and divisive topic of Jewish law in vibrant purple and golden orange – contrasting colors on the color chart. Both yarns are infused with blue, and so is the pink in the tapestries. Thus blue symbolizes the color that unifies us.
How special is the word chosen for a legal system: ‘Halakhah’ does not mean ‘law,’ but rather, ‘the way to walk.’
