“ Old men and women will yet sit in the streets of Jerusalem,
and each will have his staff in his hand due to old age, 
and the streets of the city will, once again, 
be filled with boys and girls playing”. 

[ Zecharya 8:4-5]
This painting depicts the prophecy of Zecharya, that despite the doom and destruction that he and the other
 prophets forsaw, there will be a day, that will see true peace, tranquility and happiness return to Jerusalem.
A large number of midrashim and Rabbinic interpretations of the prophecies have been included in the painting.

The narrative begins in the upper, far left, with the story of Rabbi Akiva and three Sages on the Temple Mount.
As a fox emerges from the rubble of the Holy Temple, Rabbi Akiva smiles and brings comforts to the weeping Sages (and all future generations) with his assurance that the phrophecy of the Redeption will also be fullfilled. 
Underlying the composition, is the shape of the Great Shofar that will herald this great Redemption.
As the “sound” of this shofar sweeps upwards through the trees, the circular composition brings the story to a close with a depiction of the Third Temple, of white fire,  that will descend from Heaven.

  1. In light of the awful press that the town of Beit Shemesh received during the period of 2011 – 2012, the Beit Shemesh municipality initiated an art competition titled “Peace in Beit Shemesh”.

    The response was amazing.
    With over 70 artists coming forward with works on the subject. In the fields of Music, Poetry, Literature, Photography, Sculpture and Painting. The spirit was amazing.
    The challange was great. “How do we innovate on such a painful matter?”
    “How do we counteract all the bad press?”

    The competition was tight. We didn’t know who would be awarded the first prize until
    the last moment, when Caryn Yavin’s name was called out.

    Though the real winners were everybody that participated. The members of the community, the organizers and the City
