Berit Engen WEFT and D'RASH – A Thousand Jewish Tapestries


– Garden in Its Own Jumbled Beauty

In this series, one Hebrew word only is the object being analyzed: ‘l’hitatef,’ ‘to wrap oneself’ as wrapping oneself in a tallit, a prayer shawl.
The tapestry titles are in the imagery of a Persian garden on a summer day. The colors, however, are without the brightness of such a garden, symbolizing that PaRDeS, in spite of being a system, can be quite bewildering as the categories overlap.
