Book of Life

Beautiful sculpture created by David Kracov in honor of Rabbi Yossi Raichik, the beloved director of Chabad’s Children of Chernobyl organization.

Pages of the book transform into colorful butterflies, each representing thousands of children that were saved from the devastated region of Chernobyl and given new lives. The sculpture was crafted out of metal.

    this is absolutely beautiful, it is so very meaningful for so many reasons. I love the meaning behind the making of it.

    If I personally owned it, it would be to remember the children lost to rare diseases, including my son
