Immahoth (Our Mothers)

More sculptures from the Mamilla Mall outdoor gallery:


Hannah - a praying woman

Rachel Immanu (Our Mother)

Tzakat Rachel (Rachel's Cry - for her missing children)
This one is so powerful for me, Rachel's now-empty womb has formed its own tongue and is shrieking.

Devorah under her palm tree

Miryam with what should be a hand drum

These images bear witness to the power of these sacred stories to transcend time, space and culture, to reveal old and new Torah, again and again.
