Torah Covers

6th Grade Families Turn Torah into Art

Over the last couple months, I worked with the sixth grade families at two different synagogues to help them create Torah covers inspired by their Bnai Mitzvah portions. These fabric art pieces will cover the Torah during their Bnai Mitzvah when the Torah is out on the reading table but not being read, like when the rabbi is speaking or giving a blessing. The first step to creating a meaningful piece of art is to really understand the Torah portion so the families dug in and discussed the text together.

Once they had an idea of what their Torah portions were like and what they wanted their Torah cover to say, they started creating their fabric art pieces.

And two short hours later, they had completed Torah covers that they can use on their special day!
