Tearing (Kriah)

israeli art Tearing

Israeli painter Sabina Saad ripped a hole in the cloth of the drawing. The hole that is ripped is in the form of yellow patch. It expresses the sorrow on loss of the six of millions Jews during the holocaust. According to Jewish custom mourners tear their outer garment. Every Jew, who was present while another Jew died, must tear his shirt from the front near to the neck.
