Check out this beautiful book:

David Kracov was commissioned to create an award to be given in honor of, and named for, Rabbi Yossi Raichik, the beloved director of Chabad’s Children of Chernobyl.

The award, “Book Of Life”, was created by David and inspired by the extraordinary life of Rabbi Yossi Raichik. The sculpture depicts the “Book Of Life”, each page filled with words from those he touched, with those pages and thoughts transforming into butterflies, each representing the 2.547 children he helped save and give new lives.

See photos of the creative process.
