This piece, created for a Cantor, is based on a passage from Deuteronomy 31:19 which states “Therefore, write down this song and teach it to the people of Israel; put it in their mouths, in order that this song may be My witness against the people of Israel.” From this verse we learn that each Jew is to write his/her own sefer Torah (Torah scroll).
This piece, therefore, is a scroll in progress. The hand at the left is helping to complete the song by adding its own notes. The fabrics and quilting patterns in this piece all have a musical theme.
