Last week, god introduces himself to Moses as “Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh,” or “I will be what I will be.” This photo is taken from David Yallin street in Jerusalem this past week, which has the name of god, as he speaks of himself, written in ancient Hebrew.
This week, god uses the Tetragrammaton when sharing with Moses that god will make us a people in our journey out of Egypt.
This graffiti is meaningful because it includes all three aspects of Jewish Peoplehood; it is written in our language, inside of our land, and is a reference to our Torah, our blueprint for life. Though god has many names, we are one people, one nation, and it is beautiful to see an example of our peoplehood graffitied in the street of our holiest city.
