Tallitot

2016 Midrash Tallitot

Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to run workshops at Temple Emanu-El of West Essex and Temple Israel Center of White Plains. Sixth graders in both synagogues studied their bnai mitzvah portions with their parents and pulled inspiration from the text to design and create a unique and meaningful tallit based on the Torah text. Below are photos of the families working together and some of their finished pieces.
