?מי יגיד לי הנתיבה
The “Gate of the Ravine” was the site of repeated hard battles during the siege of Jerusalem in 1948. Here, the sole life line bringing food, drinking water and supplies to the Jewish majority in the city was cut, as it winded up the mountains.
This place had a special meaning for me.
On my first visit to Israel, at age 15, I was sought out the burnt, twisted trucks and armored cars, that still littered the roadside. Most inscribed with the date of the attack, and some with the names of the men and women who died in the food convoys. My in-laws first met then, as children, on line for their water ration.
This series was created after a personal, life altering experience. After donating a kidney, I had repeated dreams of flying over Shaar HaGai in one of those improvised armored cars. Flying over the roadblocks and snipers, to bring life.
