Honor your mother and father

This weeks Torah portion introduces the ten commandments. Of course we all know that one of the top 10 is "Honor your mother and father." I considered posting some of my personal work because my dear Jewish mother has been nudging me to do so, but I have decided instead to highlight the first Jewish parents- Abraham and Sarah. There are some lovely paintings out there, starting with that star of Jewish artists- Chagall.

And from two contemporary European artists... different views of our foreparents.
