A life cycle painting by Sheryl Intrator Urman*
Time can be seen chronologically and historically as a linear sequence of events; yet, in a natural and spiritual sense, time really moves forward in reoccurring cycles (picture a circle in a spiral – a pulled out slinky). This dual nature of time is echoed in the Hebrew word for year – shanah which is a derivative of shoneh – meaning change. Time repeats itself but in a new form. We pass through the same set appointments in time each year, yet each year offers a new experience. Our journey from Egypt to Mt. Sinai, to Jerusalem and Mt. Zion happened, is happening and will happen again.
