Israel Needs Mental First Aid

Stars of David appear on an artwork by Israeli artist Drora Weizman (b. 1956) titled Tabernacle (2007). We see the cover of an old notebook, which belonged to Drora’s son. In Hebrew, the big letters Eran are the initials of Mental First Aid, and Drora wrote me that these initials inspired her to create this work, because it seems that Israel needs Mental First Aid.

IMHO this work will stay actual forever because in every generation, there will be a need to stop and ask if the State is still sane. Anyhow, to keep asking the question seems quite normal…
