Rembrant van Rijin (1606-1669) is known for his vivid interpretation of themes from the Hebrew Bible. His reputation as a painter of histories, based on pictorial and literary sources, was formed early in his career. Male figures from the Bible such as Moses, Abraham or Jeremiah are represented as heroic protagonists. Female figures, essential to the Bible and the narrative of ancient Israel, are prominently depicted in various roles: as mothers and wives or lovers of patriarchs, heroes and kings. Reflecting moralistic attitudes in art of the time, Rembrandt often portrayed these women in the context of corrupting influence or precipitating fatal events. Yet in the master's late depictions of biblical histories, we discover a deep understanding of human nature, especially noticed in his late portrayals od biblical heroines. Dr. Anat Bilboa is an art historian, specializing in early modern, Jewish and Israeli visual culture. She has taught at universities in Israel, Canada and the US. Her research has resulted in a book and in various publications in American and European journals and conferences.

Giving and Giving, Then Giving Some More

2014 is almost over. Wednesday, Dec. 17, the Jewish Festival of Light, Hanukkah, begins. We are in our last week of Sag and last two weeks of December. Sunday, Dec. 21 is winter Solstice, as the sun enters Capricorn (3:30 p.m. for the west coast). Soon after, the Capricorn new moon occurs (5:36 p.m. for the west coast)—the last new moon of 2014. Sunday morning Uranus in Aries (revolution, revelation) is stationary direct (retro since July 22). Uranus/Aries create things new and needed to anchor the new culture and civilization (Aquarius). We will see revolutionary change in 2015. Capricorn new moon, building-the-personality seed thought, is, “Let ambition rule and let the door to initiation and freedom stand wide (open).” Capricorn is a gate—where matter returns to spirit. But the gate is unseen until the Ajna Center (third eye), Diamond Light of Direction, opens. Winter solstice is the longest day of darkness of the year. The sun’s rays resting at the Tropic of Capricorn (southern hemisphere) symbolize the Christ (soul’s) light piercing the heart of the Earth, remaining there for three days, till Holy Night (midnight Thursday morning). Then the sun’s light begins to rise. It is the birth of the new light (holy child) for the world. A deep calm and stillness pervades the world.The entire planet is revivified, re-spiritualized. All hearts beating reflect this Light. And so throughout the Earth there’s a radiant “impress” (impressions, pictures) given to humanity of the World Mother and her Child. The star Sirius (love/direction) and the constellation Virgo the mother shines above. For gift giving, give to those in need. Give and give and then give some more. This creates the new template of giving and sharing for the new world.

    Fortino Winery’s Intriguing Charbono

    At the opening celebration of the new Santa Clara Wine Trail in August, one of the wineries we visited was Fortino. This is where I first tasted their intriguing estate-grown Charbono—a varietal that is one of the rarest in California, with only 80 acres grown statewide.
