DANCE OF OUR HISTORY

This is the DANCE OF OUR HISTORY. It starts in the Garden of Eden, continues through Mount Sinai, the Burning Bush, slavery in Egypt, Jonah, Noah’s Ark, the menorah, the Shofar and the Hand of God. Clockwise is Eastern and Western Europe and the Middle East. The scholar is studying Torah, the Shtetle is burning and the Holocaust. Below is the smuggling of Jews into Israel under the British “White Paper” and Jerusalem. In the lower right hand corner is our rabbi behind the pulpit under the eternal light, with the choir by his side and the symbols of the sabbath. Last is our temple, Temple Isaiah on the hill in front of the reservoir in Lafayette in the suburbs of San Francisco where I live.
