Museum of Psalms
“There are millions of artists and thousands of Kabbalists, but an artist that is a student of Kabbalah is a rare phenomenon,” the Rebbe of Stretten has said in singing the praises of artist Moshe Tzvi Berger. And Berger is indeed an avid student of both the esotericisms of the visual medium and the more arcane secrets of Jewish mysticism.
The Museum of Psalms, in the historic Rav Kook’s House in downtown Jerusalem, hosts a permanent display of Berger’s works, among which one can find the unprecedented Psalms Series. The collection of 150 paintings offers a vivid visual interpretation of each and every one of the religious verses attributed to King David -- in Berger’s unique, color-saturated style. The artist’s Sun Series comprises 42 paintings that illustrate the Kabbalitic ideas of light, meditation and healing, through various permutations of the motif of the sun.
According to the Museum’s website, besides being “Truly stunning as art, these paintings are not only visual experiences, but also transformative ones, as they tend to have a deep emotional, inspirational and healing impact on people of all ages, faiths and denominations.”
The Museum is open Sun.-Thu. from 10:00 to 17:00 but visitors are advised to call in advance and confirm. Admission is free, but there it is recommended to donate 10 ILS per person. Posters and lithographs are available for sale at the Museum.
