G-d spoke to Moses and said to him, ”I am Hashem. I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob as Kel Shakkai, but with My Name Hashem I did not make myself known to them. Moreover, I established My covenant …to give them the land of Canaan….Moreover, I have heard the groan of the Children of Israel whom Egypt enslaves and I have remembered My covenant.”
This week’s Parsha, ”Va’eira” describes the suffering of the Children of Israel, living in Egypt under cruel pharaonic rule. However, right at the beginning of the Parsha, Hashem comes to Moshe and declares that He will fulfill His commitment to the Forefathers to save the People of Israel and give them the Promised Land.
I find this directly relates to us today. The qualities of bravery, hope and faith are what I need, what we all need, today. Jerusalem (maybe even more than other cities) is undergoing a time of fear and terror. A time that in my mind connects to that period in ”Va’eira”.
And so, as I usually am, I was photographed in Jerusalem. Dressed in beautiful flowers. The color is the message. It is a shade of Magenta – a lush pink and purple blend – signifying balance. The kind of internal balance we need to cope with our day to day, complex situation. And still to aspire and believe that it will be better.
