The Bible is not for Children
Chaim Bezalel, author
The year of the pandemic was the strangest and most productive year ever. I belong to a group that discusses the weekly portion of the Torah. When in Israel, I also belong to a ceramics workshop held in the community center. Inspired by these two activities, I wrote a book which combines poems and images of sculptures called "The Bible is not for Children." It deals with the difficult parts, which most people pass over. For example, the poem on the book of Numbers begins: "Numbers is a diminishing return whose final count is two. Joshua and Caleb are the only ones who finally make it through."
