Torah Art by Sixth Graders

On Sunday, I had the opportunity to return to Beth El Synagogue Center to work with the sixth graders and their families. They studied the Torah portions for their upcoming Bnai Mitzvah and then created a piece of fabric art that will cover the Torah on the day of their Bar/Bat Mitzvah.

Below are some of the finished pieces. From left to right, they represent: (1) Moses standing on a mountain looking at the land of Israel, (2) the binding of Isaac, (3) Jacob and Esau reuniting, and (4) the search for water in the desert.

These families all worked hard on their interpretations and I hope they use them proudly in the coming year!
