Parasha Vayetze n.07
In the desert, Jacob dreamed of a ladder stretching between heaven and earth, with angels going up and down. In his dream, G-d promised to bless him with many descendants and divine favor. Jacob named this place Bethel. Arriving in Haran, Jacob met his cousin Rachel at the well, and asked his uncle Laban for his daughter Rachel’s hand. Laban demanded seven years of service from Jacob, but when the time was up he tricked Jacob, marrying him instead to Rachel’s older sister Leah. Jacob worked another seven years for Rachel. Rachel remained barren, but Leah gave birth to Jacob six sons and a daughter. Bilhah, Rachel’s handmaid, and Zilpah, Leah’s handmaid, each gave birth to two sons on their mistresses’ behalf. Then Rachel gave birth to a son, Joseph. Finally, after twenty years away from home, Jacob left for Canaan with his wives, eleven sons, and one daughter.
Parasha Vayetze n.07
Nel deserto, Yaakov sogna una scala che collega il cielo e la terra e angeli che salgono e scendono. Nel sogno il Signore promette di offrirgli protezione e benedizione con una discendenza numerosa. Yaakov chiama Bethel il luogo dove poggia questa scala. Una volta arrivato ad Haran, incontra la cugina Rachele al pozzo e chiede allo zio Labano la sua mano. Labano impone a Yaakov di prestare prima servizio presso di lui per sette anni ma, una volta scaduto il tempo, lo inganna e gli fa sposare la figlia più grande, Lea. Yaakov accetta di lavorare per altri sette anni per ottenere il premesso di sposare Rachele. Rachele all’inizio rimane sterile, mentre Lea mette alla luce sei figli maschi e una femmina. Le ancelle di Rachel e Lea, Bilhah e Zilpah, partoriscono due figli. Quindi anche Rachele diventa madre di un maschio, Giuseppe. Alla fine, dopo vent’anni lontano da casa, Yaakov parte da Canaan con le mogli, undici figli e una figlia.
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
