As a historian I found your approach to Jewish history refreshing and reassuring. [The painting depicts] the triumph of the spirit and the eternity of the Jewish people.

The Mission cannot be called just a painting but is universal in its appeal. It is a remarkable achievement. An artistic conception monumental in size and execution, it rivals many of the great visual conceptions in art history.

The painting is an inspired gift to the Jewish people everywhere and a vehicle for greater understanding betwen people. I am very honoured that Continental Cablevision will have the opportunity of producting a video on the life of artist Dubi Arie.

['The Mission' is] a monumental work. It has its own kind of fiery poetry in the swirling passion with which Arie merges so many facets of Jewish history.

Arie has painted a monumental visual story. Calling this simply a paitning is like calling the pyramids a pile of rocks.

History of Jewish people captured in a massisve painting. 'The Mission', a remarkable visual panorama that encompasses the entire history of the Jewish people. The composition is dramatic, dynamic and fits the content of the creation.

| Art Collector |
The panorama of the 'The Mission' is a way to reach all peoples, all faiths, all colours, creeds ... to cross all language barriers ... to speak of truth to the global community that can be understood by all. You are a light in the darkness, the light that can fill a dark empty soul with God's light and love.

Art Judaica Educational Foundation: It is said that the true artist possesses the power to inspire others. The recent premier of the 'The Mission' in Detroit shows that Arie's creation has the ability not only to inspire but to lift the viewer beyond time and space. 'The Mission' will certainly contribure to the survival of the Jewish people by educating our generation and subsequent generations of our past, present, and ultimate future.
