Made for a young woman becoming a Bat Mitzvah, this quilt represents the Biblical matriarch Rivka (Rebecca) with whom she shares a name. The handpainted sunrise in the backgroud represents the new dawn in the life of this current day Rivka.
The well evokes the story of the young Rivka who generously offers water to Abraham’s servant Eliezer and his camels, ultimately leading to her decision to return with him to marry Isaac. The streams of water flowing from the well contain quotes from the text which highlight Rivka’s qualities of strength, decisiveness, and courage; qualities this young woman’s family hopes she shares as she becomes an adult in the eyes of the Jewish community.
