Berit Engen WOOF and D'RASH - Weaving a Thousand Jewish Tapestries

HOLY DAYS V
– The holiest of days
 
In these tapestries I have tried to convey what this day feels like.
Yom Kippur – the Day of Atonement. White is the color of this day of vulnerability, judgment, and God’s grace. It shows best in contrast to black. Although there is no black in the synagogue, I imagine the Book of Life, the scale, and the gates in this dark color. I am not so comfortable with the contrast between the two as they place every shape and emotion into a sharp focus.
