After evacuation of Amona paintings have answered the Bible stories biblical imagery my feelings stir the imagination and my creative work
I turned to draw the painting of the daughters of Zelophehad.
I planned a sketch of the class which will be the five daughters of Zelophehad first is speaking alongside nervous and her shy and after the end of this coming to get what she deserves, to the left of the speaker clung to nurse the fifth youngest daughter looks up and listens to what is said.
Moses in front of them raises his hand with headquarters and headquarters tent flap for them as a great light denunciation of Arun tabernacle of God is within. Right Aaron and all the sages Elders Committee. Intense foreheads linger in front of the girls who come demanding exercise their right at that time women were considered the property of the man, which made me draw the status of the daughters of Zelophehad was my past in 1985 after the death of my beloved late Moses and Kessler, I was asked by my mother to come to the rabbinate and release the part of the father in the common property in favor of the mother, at the time I lived in Herzliya that have tapped into public transport and I was two months after the birth home debut, me and my mother, two brother in turn to enter the room of the rabbi was long in the doorway, blocking his body entering the room and said, “there The two boys then you have no part of the inheritance of your father and do not enter the debate.

Why did my brother have grown up just like me have rights and I do not!? I will note that since I was eight years old I watched the film Annie energetic woman eight twice, carrying empowerment and complete equality between the sexes gives me a very young age and only age 43 I drew it, the selection of the daughters of Zelophehad first ancient times did not agree with the laws Hsrrotiim unimaginative and justice
