Gabriel Cohen wrote:

An integration of various elements which fuse together to create a work which depicts the unique People of Israel, forever the Nation of Israel. From the 4 corners of the world, from ancient times until modern times, through persecutions and exiles, the Jews have remained a united nation and people because of their enduring faith in God. I didn't utilize the color yellow because that was the color that the Nazis used for the Jews. I used white extensively to symbolize the purity and simplicity of the Jewish People's hope to return to the holy Land of Israel.
