Commandment 6

The Ten Commandments (1933) by Alexander Katz (1895-1974)
(Copies of these lithographs were provided by David Pitcher, MD)

Commentary by Rabbi Alexander S. Kline
Life is sacred and its Source is God! 
This mystic design shows a pool of blood and a dove 
representing a soul hovering in space. 
Impious hands partly obliterate the name of God, 
recalling the legend that an untimely death 
embarrasses our Maker.
