This piece is part of a series on personal prayers. Inspired by Berachot 31b where we learn “Channah cast words to G-d on high,” my Flinging Prayer pieces visually represent the prayers that I find myself casting or throwing at God.
These prayers hang from the ceiling, caught in mid throw.
In the last year, two family members and two good friends were all diagnosed with breast cancer, prompting me to fling many prayers of healing heavenward. This piece, reminiscent of the pink ribbon, contains the words of Moshe’s prayer to heal Miriam in Numbers 12:13. This simple prayer, repeated over and over, becomes a chant or mantra to heal all those fighting this horrible disease.
