This book is about empowerment. Through these images and stories, the women of the Bible defy the boundaries of time, transmit their blessings and wisdom, and most importantly, guide us and strengthen us in our contemporary lives. The book is a culmination of seventeen years of painting and studying twelve women of the Bible. In it, you will learn many little-known stories from the Torah, the Talmud, the Midrash, and the Kaballah. Sara studied the women over a course of 17 years with a very revered female Hassidic scholar Yehudis Fishman. Many surprisingly magical events and coincidences occurred during the process of study and painting. Along with the paintings and narratives of each of the 12 women, these events are contained in the book as two short stories, inviting us to open up to our own inner lives. The powerful archetypes of each woman are noted at the end of each story; “The power and love existing around Rachael transcend time and space. It is a well of love we must drink from to nourish our souls and radiate overall existence.”
