On December 10, 2001, the Los Angeles Times reported that Beverly Hills artist Georgina Rothenberg presented "a sculpture of the hands of an elderly man passing on the Torah to the outreached hands of a child. 'L'dor V'dor,' the inscription would read in Hebrew: 'from generation to generation'... to Sinai Temple... [at] the beginning of the eight-day Jewish celebration of Hanukkah... Since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and a series of suicide bombings in Israel, people have clung to their traditions and values for comfort and solace, Rothenberg said. The sculpture imparts a meaning everyone can relate to, she said."
