Writing in the Baltimore Jewish Times on March 30, 2007, Maayan Jaffe reviewed an exhibit I participated in, and wrote the following:
Menachem Wecker’s collage and acrylic on canvas is a mesh of colors and lines. Creating the piece was “almost musical,” he said, “there is a harmony to it.”
Called “Windows of Heaven,” Mr. Wecker’s work explores two of Judaism’s most interesting and bewildering images of heaven: A heaven full of rotating windows (Talmud, Baba Batra 74a), and a heaven entered through a holy gate or door (Psalms).
“My painting explores … three important doors in Jewish history: the infamous door over Auschwitz that declared ‘Arbeit Macht Frei’, the Jaffa Gate in Jerusalem, and the iconic gate that occupies the title page of books of the Talmud.”
