Dorene Schwartz-Weitz’s ongoing art project is a recreation of Torah commandments.
When completed, the Mitzvah Kotel Project will be a wall made of life casts that depict all of the 77 positive commandments a Jew can keep outside of Israel. Her vision of the completed project includes interactive software allowing for a discovery process in which each individual can relate to the commandments in a personal way.
