Parasha Lech Lecha n.03
In this portion we see G-d calling Abram to leave his home and go to the land of Canaan. So Abram and Sarai, together with their nephew Lot, settle in Canaan. G-d blesses Abram, promising him countless descendants, and make a covenant with him. But Sarai is barren. She gives Abram her maid Hagar to bear a child in her place, and Hagar gives birth to a son, Ishmael. G-d promises Abram that Sarai too would soon bear a son. Then G-d changes Abram’s name to Abraham, and Sarai’s name to Sarah. When Ishmael is thirteen and Abraham is ninety-nine, Abraham circumcises himself, his son, and all the males of his household.
Parasha Lech Lecha n.03
In questa Parashà il Signore ordina ad Avraham di lasciare la propria dimora e raggiungere la terra di Canaan. Così Avraham e Sarah, insieme al nipote Lot, si stabiliscono a Canaan. Il Signore benedice Avraham con la promessa di una discendenza infinita e stipula un patto con lui. Siccome Sarah non può avere figli, decide di affidare ad Avraham la domestica Hagar, affinché possa dare alla luce un figlio al posto suo. Hagar partorisce Ismaele. Il Signore promette ad Avraham che anche Sarah sarà in grado di dare alla luce un figlio. È proprio a questo punto che il Signore cambia il nome Abramo in Avraham, Sarai in Sarah. Quando Ismaele raggiunge l’età di tredici anni e Avraham novantanove, Avraham circoncide se stesso, suo figlio e tutti gli uomini della sua famiglia.
The image above, is showing the opening part of our Illustrated Torah scroll with the first 4 sidrot. This is a canvas reproduction of the opening part of our Medium size Illustrated Torah Scroll. The scroll contains all 54 sidrot of the Torah in paintings. It is used as a fundraiser (MAKES BETWEEN 75k and 145k) for communities and it costs a tiny fraction.
As you can see here in the video, this is also a great tool for Simchat Torah and the picture of 250 kids all holding the scroll up gives the chills.
I hope to have awakened your curiosity. We have to help each other in times of distress, and this is the way we can help you and you can help us.
If you are interested, let us know and I will send to you the “Real sampler” Free of Charge.
BTW, Michal is now painting an original scroll which will be ready in approximately one year.
Same paintings only originals on canvas and will be made out as a scroll.
Cordially Be’Shalom, Michal and Alon
