Parshat Re’eh – ראה


לֹא תֹאכַל כָּל תּוֹעֵבָה

“You should not eat anything abominable” (Deut 14: 3)

Forbidden Foods

We are enjoined not to eat non-kosher food
such as the pig
so that we do not become similar to them
in our personality traits, according to the adage:
You are what you eat!

שֵׁשֶׁת יָמִים תֹּאכַל מַצּוֹת 

“Six days you should eat matzas” (Deut 16: 8)

Voyage into the Matza Interior – Video Art

An extended comparison of the “round”
hand-kneaded matza and the full moon.
Extreme close-ups of the matza texture
turn into a remarkable “lunar”
and even otherworldly landscape
replete with crevices and craggy mountains.
The micro becomes the macro and vice versa.
With a modern music (electronic & flute) track,
which gives it a special ambience.
It even has the sound of the artist
munching noisily on a matza.
Some low definition samples from the video
are available on YouTube below:
