Magen Art Print


Rabbi Harry and artist Virgil Sampson of the Tsartlip Nation worked together to create a powerful art print that combines Jewish and Coast Salish cultural aesthetics and iconography to produce “Magen” which in Hebrew means, “Protection.” The piece combines the Hamsa, a symbol shared by many peoples of the Middle East that serves as a talisman or amulet against the evil eye (bad mojo that comes to us when we invoke the envy of others), and an Orca, which is a Coast Salish symbol of protection. After Virgil and Rabbi Harry shared intense dialogue and learning, Virgil created this striking and innovative work of art. After consultation with elders and other rabbis, both Virgil and Rabbi Harry feel that this work of collaboration and connection is in the spirit of reconciliation that begins with sharing.
