This unique acrylic painting distills and holds the spirit of shabbat throughout the entire week. This piece depicts the sabbath bride, surrounded by bright lilies and under a shining crescent moon. The image of the sabbath bride dates back centuries; the mystics of 16th century Safed, Israel often went out into the surrounding fields dressed all in white to welcome the sabbath as if she were a bride entering the city. The background is filled with shades of a calming blue, reminiscent of a peaceful moonlit night. The serenity in this bride’s eyes reflects the sense of rest and thanksgiving that we find on the sabbath.
