The Installation of "THE MENORAH," a painting by DAVID RAPPAPORT, in the Peck Jewish Chapel at The Mount Sinai Medical Center.
Tuesday, October 16, 2007, David Rappaport showing of “THE MENORAH” painting, Guggenheim 1190 5th Avenue, 101st, New York, NY. David Rappaport, an American-born artist, had quadruple heart bypass surgery sixteen years ago. Eight years ago he was the victim of a near-death stroke which impaired his speech, slowed his mobility and immobilized his right hand. Due to his indomitable will and the extraordinary support of Frances, his wife of sixty-eight years, he survived. But it was his love of life that enabled him, against all odds, to find a way to continue to paint, the activity that had made his life so rich and full. With his right hand rendered useless, David fought hard and learned to paint with his left hand. Painting, second only to his love of Frances, his children and grandchildren, continues to renew his drive and will to enjoy every day as if it were the only day. The work, as well as David, continues to grow and flourish. PHOTO CREDIT: ©S.D.
