The idea for this cover originated in discussions with my sister, the author.  She wanted the cover to convey this key part of the manuscript; “Gezerah: A rabbinical enactment issued as a guard or preventive measure; also a prohibition or restriction generally; from the root “gazar” (to cut; to decide). The term is especially applied to a negative ordinance which the Rabbis instituted as a guard or a fence (“geder”) to shore up a Biblical precept.” Below is the photo I took to base the illustration on.
