On Wednesday, I was back at Kol Ami’s Early Childhood Program. This week, I worked with two of their 4-year-old classes to create a piece of fiber art about Jacob meeting Rachel at the well. They had learned the story the day before with Rabbi Jennifer Goldsmith in Torah Alive so they knew just what was needed to create the scene: Jacob, Rachel, Laban, a well, a camel, and some sheep. Each student in the class chose one part of the picture to create and got to work.
They then brought their pieces to the background and worked together to complete the scene.
