Beautiful Hebrew and English calligraphy of the teaching from Pirkei Avot 2:21 surrounds embossed brass, copper, and aluminum in this gorgeous piece of art. The lovingly embossed metal depicts the originator of the quote, Rabbi Tarfon, in tefillin reading a text. This piece makes an excellent gift for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah or someone in a social justice field. While famed artist Gad Almaliah is no longer with us, his designs live on and are produced by his wife Joan.
