In this print of A’irah, a figure in burgundy and blue steps forth from darkness into light. On his forehead he wears Tefillin encasing the Holy Name of G-d.
“And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thy hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the law of the LORD may be in thy mouth; for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee out of Egypt.” (Exodus 13:9)
The title is taken from Psalm 57:9, “Awake, O soul, awake harp and lyre! I will wake the dawn!” The words “I will wake” translate the titular Hebrew word a’irah [אעירה]. See Berakhot 3b-4a.
