The Power of the Hebrew Alphabet by Gloria Abella Ballen Lecture April 13

See also

It is one of the mystical wonders of the letters of the Hebrew alphabet that the more you study them the more that deeper layers of meaning unfold to reward you, and it is also not uncommon for them to come to you in dreams.

This is how the letters began to take hold of the imagination of internationally award-winning artist Gloria Abella Ballen, who will present a slide show and talk at the JCC in Albuquerque on April 13 at 2 pm of her newly published book, “The Power of the Hebrew Alphabet” (Gaon Books, Santa Fe, 2014 $65) and afterwards will sign books.

As Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Shlomi says in a quote on the back cover, “The Hebrew letters, their shapes and colors give enlightenment and wisdom. . . In Jewish mysticism they are also the building blocks of the universe. Enjoy the flight of consciousness this glorious book affords you.”
