Hebrew / English
In this gorgeous book, contemporary Israeli artist Enya Tamar Keshet presents magnificent, illuminated manuscripts of women s prayers. Contained within are 28 prayers collected from around the world, many of which are recited exclusively by women. Each one is a reproduction of Enya's detailed and colorful original work accompanied by text from Hebrew, Ladino, and Yiddish sources. Many of the prayers correspond to a woman s complete cycle of life, from birth, to a Bat Mitzvah, for a bride, during pregnancy, after childbirth, on parenting, and also death and mourning. Traditional prayers like Eshet Chayil and Hannah s Prayer of Thanksgiving are also included, as is the first ever (recently composed) women s prayer before Torah study, and a plate that includes the 115 names of the women in the Torah in the order in which they appear.
Enya Tamar Keshet s works combine the traditional look of medieval illuminated manuscripts with her own very modern inspiration in order to tend the old roots while growing a new tree, as she describes it.
