The Jewish Publication Society
has just published "Tales in Praise
of the Ari," according to an an-
nouncement by William S. Fish-
man, president of the society.
The locale of the tales is the city
of Safed, which occupies a unique
position in Jewish history. Situated
on a hill in the Galil, its sand
colored stone houses and tiny,
meandering streets give it a charm
and quaintness all its own. During
the Middle Ages, Safed became a
city of mystics, a dwelling place
for great religious leaders whose
words and deeds have come down
to us in the strange, exotic lan-
guage of mysticism.
One of these leaders was Rabbi
Isaac Luria Ashkenazi—the Ari. In
a little book called Sefer Shivchai
Ila-Ari, some of the deeds of this
great man have been preserved in
legendary form. This book forms
the text for this collection of draw-
ings by Moshe Raviv.
Moshe Raviv is one of the great
contemporary artists of Israel. He
was horn in Vilna, Lithuania. He
studied painting, architecture, and
the history of art at Vilna Univer-
sity. In 1928. he entered the Bau-
haus of Dessau where he spent two
years and came under the influ-
ence of Kandinsky and Klee. In
1934 • he moved to Palestine where
he has lived ever since.
It has been said of Raviv that his
paintings reveal the secrets of
Safed and its atmosphere, that his
brush puts magic into the stones of
the city. The drawings that ac-
company this collection of wonder
tales about the Ari capture, through
the forms and discipline of modern
art, the unique mood and utterance
of a legendary city that has be-
come an integral part of the living
memory of the Jewish people.
The book is beautifully designed
and produced. It has 64 pages, is
13 inches by 10 inches in size.
