SPARKS OF DIVINE
The verse that surrounds the Sparks of Divine:
“From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to heaven
and when two souls that are destined to be together find each other,
their streams of light flow together and a single brighter light goes forth
from their united being” (Ba’al Shem Tov)
Universal and Judaic themes are surrounding this Middle eastern shaped ketubah
with Moorish elements around it.
The top Circles stand for “Eretz”- The land of milk and honey Israel.
Look for the seven species- 6 at the top and the Seventh-“wheat”
at the bottom in between the lions.
The tree of life with olive branches wrap the ketubah from the outside as the verse says:
“Your wife is like a fruitful vines that surround your table…”
and the vines, it’s grapes and leaves flows together with color harmony.
On the right hand side of the ketubah, the earth toned red,
hides in itself many golden Judaic symbols,
such as: The Torah, Menorah, an ancient cup, Harvest,
Fishes for fertility, Hamsa for good luck and more.
On theleft hand side of the ketubah, the black background,
hides in itself the sites and the spirit of the Golden city Jerusalem,
the little houses, The Montifiori wind mill, the western wall, water waves, and the rising sun.
In the big tall African candle holders burning the two Sparks of the Divine.
And an ancient melody can be heard…
from the legendary “Gibson” Mandolin (1922) and the David harp
