2020 Hebrew Illuminations

Author: Rhine, Adam

Description: From the Shema prayer that commands, "You shall love the Lord your G-d" (Devarim/Deuteronomy 6:4–9) to the fiery romance between a husband and wife in Shir HaShirim (Song of Songs), love plays a complex, intense, and beautiful role in Judaism. We pray daily to the Lord for shalom (peace) to be granted to our families, to Klal Yisrael (all of Israel), and to the entire world. This unique calendar features sixteen original paintings by Jewish artist Adam Rhine, that celebrate the ideas of peace and love, including Shabbat Shalom (Peace on the Sabbath), Sheva Brachot (The Seven Wedding Blessings), Ema (Mother), and Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World). Each painting is accompanied by text from Tanakh (Jewish scripture) that brings meaning and context to the artwork. Rhine creats ornate, highly detailed Judaic paintings in acrylic, watercolor, and colored pencils. His intricate work combines modern palettes and aesthetics with the influence of medieval illuminated manuscripts.
