The Chernobyl disaster is still strongly present in many people's lives, which is why artist David Kracov created the 'Book of Life,' a tribute to the late director of Chabad's Children of Chernobyl Rabbi Yossi Raichik.

This mesmerizing metal sculpture was created to honor the life and work of Rabbi Yossi Raichik, who helped many children after the catastrophic disaster. The book features a beautiful burst of butterflies that represent the 2,547 little ones he saved, and its pages contain words from those he touched.

David Kracov was commissioned to create the award and the result is inspiring and extraordinary; a magnificent tribute to a hero.
