Although Shabbat is a magical time for all ages, I believe it is especially enchanting for children. I was particularly excited at being privy to the weekly celebration with adults. Sitting at the candle-lit Shabbat table, surrounded by excited adult chatter made me feel grown up and included in the “bigger world”. Here I represent the three “faces” of the Sabbath as I remember it – wonder, learning and imagining. My visual device of birds (as I use regularly) have a dual symbolism: spiritually they represent the soul and a link to our past, present and future. Visually, the birds’ blurred movement is suggestive of a quiet, caught moment. I use doves (Yonah) as they were the only domesticated birds among the Israelites, so for me they form part of the Jewish visual story.
