“Noah’s Sacrifice”

The sign of hope – the cost of the covenant?

My Bow In The Cloud – A Covenant

blog coverThe Jewish Text Art Challenge for the Hebrew month of Cheshvan comes from the book of Breishit (Genesis 9:16) which we read this week as part of the portion of Noah.

The flood has ended and Noah is looking for re-assurance – a sign from God that there is hope for the survival of the newly re-created world.

The bow in the cloud – the rainbow – becomes this symbol of connection between God and creation. It is a covenant, a promise of a future.

Over the course of this month we hope that you will find inspiration from the works and ideas connected with this verse, both those that we share, and those which are brought to us by our communities.
