Hillel: If I am not for Myself...
13.5" x 10"
Hillel the Elder said in Pirkei Avot 1:4, "If I am not for myself, who is for me, and if I am only for myself, what am I, and if not now, when?"
The border is a commentary by Rabbi Yehudah Aryeh Leib Alter, also known as the Sefat Emet, 1847 – 1905. It is documented in him commentary on the Torah Parshat Achrei Mot in which he said as a discourse in 1876.
This is a piece with that saying. Perfect for inspitration to hang on the wall. This also makes a lovely and unique Bar / Bat Mitzvah gift.
