This well-illustrated book explores themes and concepts such as superstition, Jewish and universal myths, blessings, prayers, and folk remedies from diverse perspectives which range from faith and acceptance to a critical approach. The featured artistic works are based on recognition of the human need to belong and feel protected, stemming from the realization that culture, myths, folklore, and faith form a dynamic system, which constantly nourishes itself by means of accumulation and selection, and through a sense of belonging.
