col­lage of mu­sic, text and im­ages based on jew­ish myths about the cave of mach­pelah in he­bron, israel. This scene begins with the biblical account of Abimelech complaining to Abraham that he had no way of knowing that Sarah was the wife of Abraham before he kidnapped her. He is worried that the Jewish God will punish him for his deed. Sure enough, when Abraham consults with God, God again warns Abimelech to return Sarah to Abraham or face death. Abimelech complies and Abraham rewards him by praying that God will grant to the barren wife of Abimelech a child. God does so, instantaneously, and then Abraham requests from God a child also for his own barren wife Sarah. Lilit intervenes to try to prevent the birth of Isaac, but Abraham invokes the kabbalah Book of Raziel to combat Lilit's magic. When Lilit sees the infant Isaac, her own motherly impulses are touched, and she is impelled to begin to return to God herself. The first stage of her "t'shuvah" (Hebrew: "return") is that of groping in the void, and this scene ends with Lilit still groping. All this also symbolizes the kabbalistic process of "tsimtsum" (Hebrew: "contracting of ego").
