The Yakir Hagada Award

The Yakir Hagada Award was created for the Beth Emeth Bais Yehuda Synagogue to honor exceptional people in that congregation and their dedication to human rights. It is presented every year to a person elected by the Synagogue Committee.

The Vision:

The idea of my sculpture is to mount the stairs.

The higher you go, the wiser you become.

The stalagmite is a symbol of beauty and the highest stalagmite ends in the Star of David.

The hand which supports the whole Universe symbolizes the hand of the Creator.

“I have tried my best to create this sculpture for the people of the Synagogue.” ~Misha Frid.
