Berit Engen: WEFT and D'RASH – Weaving a Thousand Jewish Tapestries

 – The Holiest of Days and How It Feels

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 feel slightly uncomfortable with the contrast between the two as they place every shape and emotion into a sharp focus.
