”A picture is worth a thousand words.”
This axiom usually applies to people, events or physical phenomena. But can pictures also explain the ethics and philosophy of Judaism?
Simple geometric shapes- the triangle, the square, the Magen David and more are used to illustrate Judaism’s most fundamental and profound concepts. The result is an unprecedented picture –sharp clarity. In fact, the Cosmic Bagel (a circle within a circle) is the most user-friendly bagel in the history of the world! Not only Judaism, but also the very purpose of life will be so patently obvious that you’ll ask yourself, “Why didn’t I know this before?” In the end, you’ll be telling everyone: “A picture is not worth a thousand words. In The Cosmic Bagel, it’s worth ten thousand words!”
