Leeks are one of the simanim (symbols) that we eat on the first night of Rosh Hashana.
יהי רצון מלפנך, ה’ אלקינו ואלקי אבותינו, שיכרתו שונאינוMay it be Your will, Hashem, our God and the God of our forefathers, that our enemies be decimated

Beautiful Leora, you have a real gift.
Thanks for the encouragement, Robin.
Thank you for posting this beautiful painting before Rosh Hashanah. My dish on the first night will include leeks (and carrots) but in a fish dish.

Oh, thanks for identifying the writer of that page! Lots of good information there.
I just did a version of the painting without the text. Fun with Photoshop. I’ll post it on Facebook first.
May all our prayers – including the one featured in your lovely painting – soon be answered l’tovah (“for the good”).
Amen – kein yehi ratzon!
What a beautiful water color, filled with softness and inspiration!
