The Torah describes Israel as "a land of wheat and barley, and (grape) vines and fig-trees and pomegranates; a land of olive-trees and (date) honey." (Deuteronomy 8:8) This Biblical passage has been the inspiration for the "Peace and Promise"series. This 8/9 piece set is the artist's prayer that the "Promise" God made to the Jewish people and the "Promise" that the Jewish people made to God, will one day be achieved.

The word "Peace" is carved 7 different ways, each surrounded by a different one of the seven species. There are two center plates to this series, each offering a differing view of the "Promise" as well as another representation of the seven species. The 7 species are featured altogether differently on a Tzadakkah Box, a Mizrach as well as serve as the borders for the front and back of the "Remembrance"series.
