Words of inspiration:

I took on the challenge of painting Rabbi Aharon Yehuda Leib Steinman ZTVL, (1914-2017) a man who most of all fulfilled the blessing, "And made me a temple and housed within them - teaches that everyone will contain the Shekinah (G-d's presence) in his heart." By this, it is clear that he had  a huge spirit and came from a great generation that lived with humility that knows no bounds.

The desire to reflect and fold within a two-dimensional painting the power, along with the softness, leadership and governmental qualities  alongside simplicity and folk, and various other kinds of opposites that would not reside within one person, however large, reminded me of the initially quoted midrash.

Rabbi Steinman was larger than anyone can contain,
and the little bit I got from him—

I tried to express in this little painting.
