Feel the need to grow... like a tree

A recent facbook discussion has lead me to try and go back to the roots of this blog where I combined the Parsha and art... but I want to delve in to the Haftorah portions, because I am not as familiar with that and want to learn.

Did you know that in this week's haftorah Solomon directs the building of the Temple? And did you know that the very famous words which we speak as we stand before the open ark come from this reading?

It is a tree of life for those who grasp it, and it's supporters are praiseworthy. Its ways are ways of pleasantness and all its paths are peace". Proverbs Chapter 3 (17-18)
These ark doors come from Congregation Etz Chaim in Fairport New York and were Al Ornstein.

Shabbat Shalom.
