Pessach in Venice

The Jewish community of Venice celebrates every year a Seder for all the members. The weeks before, volunteers of the community bake the Mazzot (unleavened bread) and the typical Pesach cookies called bisse according to traditional recipes in the old Pesach forno (bakery) like their ancestors did since the Ghetto was established in 1516.

For this occasion I took myself the artistic license and moved our community center on  the Canale Grande. The mazzot and the wine are brought in by boats.  If you look at the picture you can see on the right Elijah the prophet who traditionally takes part in every seder and for whom we always prepare a goblet of wine. Lapo our red tubby cat whom you can see in the background participates also in the event.

This Week Parasha Torah Banner The Studio in Venice by Michal Meron

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.
