Bar Mitzvah 2: A Son's Questions 16" x 20"
 In this image, a father is helping his son to don his tefillin. For the rest of his life, the Bar Mitzvah is obligated to wear the tefillin at all appropriate times. These small leather boxes contain scrolls of Torah passages which command Jews to bind the word of God on their bodies. The white tallit (prayer shawl) worn by the father identifies him as belonging to the Sephardic tradition.
