This beautiful work of art celebrates FRIENDSHIP and THE ABILITY TO SEE THE GOOD IN PEOPLE.
This papercut is in the shape of a beautiful, pleasing circle. The filigree around the text is masterfully crafted on laser-cut paper and in the center, the prayer is printed in traditional Hebrew text.
The text is taken from "Adraba," a segment of a prayer written by the holy Rebbe (Rabbi) Elimelech of Lizensk, which says that everyone should look into their friends and neighbors and find the good things and not the bad.
אַדְּרַבָּה, תֵּן בְּלִבֵּנוּ שֶׁנִּרְאֶה כָּל אֶחָד מַעֲלַת חֲבֵרֵינוּ וְלא חֶסְרונָם, וְשֶׁנְּדַבֵּר כָּל אֶחָד אֶת חֲבֵרו בַּדֶּרֶךְ הַיָּשָׁר וְהָרָצוּי לְפָנֶיךָ, וְאַל יַעֲלֶה שׁוּם שנְאָה מֵאֶחָד עַל חֲבֵרו חָלִילָה וּתְחַזֵּק אוֹתָנוּ בְּאַהֲבָה אֵלֶיךָ, כַּאֲשֶׁר גָּלוּי וְיָדוּעַ לְפָנֶיךָ, שֶׁיְּהֵא הַכּל נַחַת רוּחַ אֵלֶיךָ
Rather, let our hearts see the virtues of our friends, and not their faults. And let us speak to each other in a way that is seemly and worthy before You, and let no hatred rise in one towards another, God forbid.
It is a wonderful way to look at life and this would make the most thoughtful gift for. . . . anyone, really:
A great friend
A great neighbor
Newly married couple
Bar/Bat Mitzvah teens
Holy Land lovers

A little bit about me:
My name is David Fisher. I was born in Jerusalem and I am an Israeli graphic designer. Utilizing a modern laser cut technology, I have made it my goal to revive the traditional Jewish art form of paper cutting, which goes back to at least the Middle Ages. Together with my expertise in paper cut art, Hebrew typography and the technique of arranging and designing text, I joyfully create these acclaimed works of art, which are beautiful portrayals of Jewish blessings, prayers, symbols and decorative motifs.
