Chasidic dancing at Kings gallery

Many artists work on depictions and conveyance the moments of the highest emotional integration. Dancing is an avenue of worship. It is an expression and simulation of joy as well as a spiritual uplift. In particular, the most common form of Chasidic dance is the round dance. There are special dances for ceremonies with the mystical significance, for instance, mitsve dance in weddings.

There was a story about the Besht (Baal Shem Tov), a mystic and the founder of Hasidic Judaism, describing the sense and the power of the dance. He was dancing with a Torah scroll, but then continued without it, he said he had “put aside the physical Torah and taken up the spiritual Torah”.


Ora Nissim creates luminous “Chasidic dancing” on the flaming background. In the colorful painting she shows men whirling in the passion. The common mood forms their unique melody, that they are able to share with spectators. This peace has slightly darker tints in comparison with her depiction of four dancers. Also, “Chasidic dancing” of an orchestra is impressive. Musicians with so differently sad eyes form a single whole with their instruments stating the harmony. The blog about her paintings might be interesting.

Besides, our gallery has three depictions of Chassidic dancing by Yosef Douer. Silhouettes of three chassids resemble fire flames. “Golden Chassidic dancing” is a meditation that gives opportunity to ascend.

The figure of “Chasid” is in the vortex. Yosef Douer made an explicit accent on the hand with the calling gesture. Red and blue combine elements of fire and water, that seem to envelop the worshipper. Check our blog about him and his artworks.
