In this second image from 'The Rituals Of Atonement' suite, created in 1974, the women's ritual bath is shown in use with two observers present to verify that immersion has taken place in the prescribed manner. Although only one observer is traditionally required, two are shown to emphasize that this practice unites all generations of Jewish women through the laws of family purity. Following the immersion ritual, three stars are seen in the sky indicating the onset of the Sabbath, when the woman may return home to light the Sabbath candles and preside over her family gathering.
