Parasha Vayishlach n.08
The night before meeting with his brother Esau after an absence of twenty years, Jacob struggled with a divine being and wrested from him a new name, Isra’el (“Struggler with G-d”). The next day Esau and Jacob met and reconciled. Soon after they settled in Canaan, Jacob only daughter Dinah was raped by the son of Hamor the Hivite who was chieftain there in Shechem, and Dinah’s brothers took revenge by massacring all the men in the city of Shechem. Sometime after this event, Rachel gave birth to a second son, Benjamin, but she died in childbirth, and Jacob buried her there on the road to Bethlehem. Then Isaac died, and Jacob and Esau buried him.
Parasha Vayishlach n.08
La notte prima dell’incontro con il fratello Esaù dopo un’assenza di vent’anni, Yaakov lotta con un essere divino e gli strappa un nuovo nome, Isra’el («Colui che lotta contro il Signore»). Il giorno seguente i due fratelli si incontrano e si riconciliano. Poco dopo il ritorno a Canaan, l’unica figlia di Yaakov, Dinah, viene violentata dal figlio di Hamor l’Hivita, il capo di Shechem. Per vendetta i fratelli di Dinah massacrano tutti gli uomini della città. Qualche tempo dopo Rachel dà alla luce il suo secondogenito, Beniamino, ma muore di parto e Yaakov le dona sepoltura lungo la strada per Betlemme. Anche Isacco muore e Yaakov ed Esaù lo seppelliscono.
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
