This painting is based on the verse:

״Jerusalem is the light of the world " What does it mean?

Jerusalem during the days of the Temple was said to have been the light of the world as will be the Third Temple in Jerusalem.

So why is Jerusalem the light of the world? Is not the sun the light of the world?

Firstly, we need to understand the concept of light from its contrast, the darkness, because light is what allows us to understand what happens around us so that we won't fail.

Just as the physical light directs us and helps us find our way, we need spiritual light as well, so we won't fail.

And this spiritual light comes from Jerusalem, "Because from Zion shall come forth the Torah and the word of G-d from Jerusalem"
