Tree Of Life

She is a Tree Of Life
More Precious than Gold
Hold Her in your Heart
and You will Understand
Aitz Chaim Hi (She Is A Tree Of Life)

This piece was begun with the intent of becoming the front panel of the cover for my community's new Torah. It is inspired by a Hebrew song in praise of the Torah. The verses are all in Hebrew but the chorus (above) is in English. I wish I could include the music for you ... it is a lovely piece that plays in my head constantly when I work the piece.
