Over the past year, I have started devoting time to exploring my Jewish heritage and begun learning how to read Hebrew to have a deeper understanding of my faith and culture. I have always been enamored with the symbolism and significance of the Tree of Life in Jewish traditions. When it came time to name this shawl, I noticed that the lace stitches remind me of tiny leaves on a tree. Leaves depict hope, renewal, and revival - three things I feel the world could use more of these days. Combining these concepts brought me to the Hebrew word for leaves: Alim. - Jessica Ays, Double the Stitches
