Drawing Connections: The Jewish Year
Our understanding of the Jewish Holidays deepens when we see how they are linked. Each child will choose one holiday from a list to represent on paper using a selection of art supplies, and based on suggested elements (Shofar on Rosh Hashana, etc.). We will then map the Jewish Year by placing the artworks around the room chronologically. Participants will see the linear relationships; build community through shared creation; and consider new connections between the holidays through a discussion. 
Ages 3-6
