Chanukah Art Workshop
According to the Ramak- Rav Moshe Cordoevero each sefira; spiritual attribute is represented by a different color: (Aryeh Kaplan)
keser-crown-will/pleasure-blinding invisible bright light
chochma-wisdom-color that includes all colors-rainbow of colors-prism
-all the Jews serve Hshem through a different branch, a different attribute, yet we are all one, everyone has a different path, but we are all united, we are all like a different color yet unite to serve Hshem as one!
- -just as the menorah in the temple (Bais Hamikdash) was made from one block of gold.
-a Cohen (a priest in the temple) illuminates the menorah- while he is wearing white ( representative of love/kindness) vestments-has to have love of a fellow Jew to illuminate another Jew.
-Tikun- that means in a rectified way-a peaceful-harmonious way-we all work together, mix and mold together in a great harmony and unity!
-WE ARE ALL ONE! yet serve Hashem differently, all part of one truth, as the branches art part of one Menorah.
We used watercolor paints-utilizing the different colors/attributes sefiros to create a Menorah of unity!
