Yaron Bob, the sculptor behind the Rockets into Roses creations, inspired a huge AIPAC crowd with his explanation of why he does what he does.
Who would take a rocket and transform it into a flower, or Menorah?
Bob lives in a town next to the Gaza border and, after surviving a near-death experience from a rocket fired by Hamas, he considered it a miracle. Eventually he hit upon the idea of transforming rockets into “roses.” Bob feels he is excising the hatred and imbuing the metal with a new purpose and power.
For Bob, these metal items are the ultimate symbol of hope and strength that demonstrate the Israeli dream for peace.

Hand sculpted roses, candlesticks and menorahs crafted from actual Kassam Rockets that landed in Israel, symbolize the perseverance of the people of Israel. Living symbols of Israel’s endurance in the face of Hamas and Islamic terror.
Yaron Bob understands what it means to live in the shadow of terror and has found his way of transforming objects of war into expressions of peace. His metal art sculptures blossom with hope. He has created a magnificent rose with a mission.
