Book Of Life: Beautiful Butterflies Burst From This Stunning Book

Beautiful Butterflies Burst From Book

From a visual perspective, this is one of the most stunning books I’ve ever seen. It’s actually not even a real book at all; it’s a metal sculpture. The message behind it is just as beautiful as the book itself. It’s all about a man who made a real difference in a lot of people’s lives many years ago. Rabbi Yossi Raichik saved over 2,500 children from the effects of the Chernobyl disaster. Before he died, he was the director of Chabad’s Children of Chernobyl.

David Kracov was commissioned to create this sculpture to be given in honor of the rabbi’s work. Each page has words from the children (who are now all grown up) whose lives he touched. These butterflies represent the children whom he gave a renewed chance at life.

The ironic thing to me is that these butterflies look so delicate and fragile. Of course, that is until you see David sculpting the metal with his pliers. That is when you realize the magnitude of this book, which is probably very heavy. The only sad part about this story is that the rabbi didn’t get to see this creation while he was still alive. It sounds to me though like he had a very fulfilling life full of joy even without seeing this incredible tribute.
