“The point is not that we hate Assyrians,” Rabbi Kleinbaum said. “We’re told that there was a causeless hatred — sinat chinam — among the Jews. The Assyrians were just the force of history that made it happen. That has a lot to say to us in the modern world: that hatred breeds terrible violence and war.”

She also finds emblems of same-sex love in the artwork. Notice, she said, that in the lion pairs, both are male. “And the two men in the chariot,” Rabbi Kleinbaum added. “Who knows what their relationship is.”

ܐܬܐ ܕܐܬܘܪ

"כְּאַיָּל תַּעֲרֹג עַל אֲפִיקֵי מָיִם כֵּן נַפְשִׁי תַעֲרֹג אֵלֶיךָ אֱלֹהִים."

Как олень стремится к источникам вод, так стремится душа моя к Тебе, Боже.
كما يشتاق الإيل إلى جداول المياه، هكذا تشتاق نفسي إليك يا الله
ܐܝܟܼ ܐܝܠܐ ܕܓܥܐ ܥܠ ܦܨܝܕܐ ܕܡܝ̈ܐ݁ ܗܟܝܢ ܐܦ ܢܦܫܝ ܓܥܝܐ ܠܘܬܟܼ ܡܪܝܐ
