Adam Rhine is a professional artist and member of the American Guild of Judaic Art. He also serves on the Board of Directors for the Lincolnwood Jewish Congregation in Lincolnwood Illinois. Enthusiastically recommended for personal, synagogue, academic, and community library collections, Hebrew Illuminations showcases the Judaic symbolism and themes of Rhine's art as it had originally appeared in calendars, greeting cards, magazine covers--and even on chocolate candy! Comprised of forty-four truly stunning and memorable images, Hebrew Illuminations is especially recommended to the attention of students of kabbalistic meditation practices through offering a visual contemplation of hidden meanings in Hebrew letters and symbols ranging from the "Aleine" (a declaration of faith that inspires an offer of praise for all creation), to the "Chai" (a tribute to the divine for the miraculous gift of life). Here are to be found emotionally and spiritually moving images in honor and celebration of jewish holidays, Torah passages, Sabbath practices, and so much more. In the tradition of medieval illuminated manuscripts, Adam Rhine's Hebrew Illuminations is both a showcase collection of superb art and a volume of meditative inspiration for spiritual insight and reflection.
