Holocaust Causations

A selection of my few paintings that attempt to deal with the theme of the Holocaust and even contemporary anti-Semitism, but within positive context of Divine Providence

Abraham’s Prophecy


The Patriarch Abraham was ordered to pass
through a set of animal carcasses
(Genesis 15: 7-15) to receive the frightening
prophesy of the Exile, not only to Egypt,
but to ALL the exiles (including the Holocaust)
that his descendants would suffer.

Meditation on Jewish Stars


Suggestions of the barbed wire of Aushwitz
being transformed into Jewish stars
and a hope for the future.

Terrorist – Surprise!


The surprised face of a terrorist
who has just blown himself up (and others as well)
and instead of entering a paradise with 72 virgins
finds himself burning in hell.
Perhaps my most macabre work
and one of my rare political statements
catalyzed by the impossible & grim state
of affairs in Israel & the world today
and the possibility of a NEW Holocaust.
