During the Hebrew month of Tevet, we celebrate the final days of Chanukah and finish reading Genesis/Breishit, the 1st book in the Torah reading cycle. We hope that the lights of Chanukah continue to burn brightly, leading us towards discovering new paths in our lives. We hope that the words of the Torah continue to challenge and inspire us. We proclaim “Chazak, Chazak, V’Nitchazeik” – “Be Strong, Be Strong, and We Shall Strengthen!”, remembering that life is a journey, and we are always striving to build stronger connections to the people and places that matter most in our lives.
As this month’s text, “chazak, chazak, v’nitchazeik” will focus on the ideas of strength, power, and support in Jewish texts and traditions. We look forward to sharing art that inspires us to grow, become stronger, and which nurtures the core of our commitment to all our work here at Books and Blintzes.
If you have work that connects with this text and would like to add it to our galleries, please complete the contact form on the main Jewish Text Art Challenge page at https://booksandblintzes.com/home/jtac/
Chodesh Tov! A good month to all!
