he Sinai Peninsula
has been a source of
romantic attraction for
countless scholars and
pilgrims ever since the 19th
century. In recent years, Is-
raelis, too, joined the ranks
of those wishing to uncover
the secrets of its past.
Having been a land bridge
between Africa and Asia,
Egypt and Canaan, the
Sinai Desert was home to a
diversity of peoples whose
fascinating remains were
uncovered in a number of
archeological excavations
conducted throughout the
1970s and 1980s. A selection
of these finds, spanning a
vast time period — from the
4th millennium BCE until
the 14th century CE — has
been presented in an exhi-
bition at the Israel Museum
in Jerusalem. Many of the
objects are on view to the

he work of Judaic artist
Michel Schwartz will be
showcased in a new adver-
tisement from Absolut
Vodka, premiering in the Au-
gust/September issue of
T Hestyles Magazine and later ap-
pearing in New York Magazine
and the Jerusalem Reprot.
Titled "Absolut L'Chaim," the
colorful ad combines Mr.
Schwartz's signature style of cre-
ating images out of Hebrew let-
ters with the shape of widely
recognized Absolut bottle.
Proceeds from the sale of
posters and limited edition lith-
ographs of "Absolut L'Chaim" will
benefit the Lubavitch Education
Center in Charlotte, N.C., an in-
stitution devoted to promotng
Jewish culture and heritage in
the area. The posters will be sold

for $38 each and the 380 litho-
graphs, which will be signed and
numbered by the artist, will sell
for $380 each. Mr. Schwartz ex-
plained that the number 380 is
significant to him and to the
Lubavitch community because it
is the numerical equivalent of the
rebbe's initials, mem-mem-shin,
Menachem Mendel Schneerson.
Mr. Schwartz's artistic talent
was recognized at the early age
of 13, when he enrolled in the
New York School of Art and De-
sign. At 14, he began working di-
rectly with the rebbe, illustrating
a variety of Lubavitch publica-
tions. Absolut Vodka, a kosher
product, is produced at a distillery
in Ahus, on the southern Baltic
coast of Sweden.
