Series: The Magnificent modern mosaics of Israel -  Priestly Blessing, Tel Aviv Rabbinate

Another work of Nahum Gutman, this large mosaic depicting the Jewish Priestly Blessing hangs in the Tel Aviv Rabbinate building. The blessing involves the raising of joint hands as seen in the mosaic, where it is surrounded by other religious elements such as a shofar, the priestly breastplate of precious stones, an oil urn and seven candles representing the seven-branched candelabra. The mosaic was created in the Italian city of Ravenna based on Gutman’s plans and was erected in Tel Aviv in 1961.
