Artist and Rabbi Yitzchok Moully who created a show-stopping sculpture for the recent outdoor gala event for Chabad of the Hamptons in New York explains what was behind it:
This “Overflowing Blessings” idea has been with me for a number of years now. It began with a regular size kiddish cup and grew.
This version is the fulfillment of the original dream, an 8-foot tall Kiddish cup. In Judaism, 7 represents the natural order and 8 represents transcending the natural order. I purposely chose to create Overflowing Blessings Cup 8 feet tall as a celebration of our abundant transcending blessings.
I’m indeed overflowing with blessings to be able to bring this idea into the world as I had envisioned.
This past Sunday Chabad of the Hamptons, led by Rabbi Leibel and Goldie Baumgarten, hosted their annual gala celebrating all the overflowing blessings in their community and beyond!
Thank you to all the people who were part of this journey to make this idea a reality: Dan Yitzhak Gabber for designing the cup, the Baumgartens for believing in this crazy idea Jose Perez for constant support and most to my family who join on this journey with me daily!
Friends, let’s celebrate our blessings!
