Kitah Vav Tallit Making

Posted on March 27, 2016

Today we had the privilege of having Nancy Fried-Tanzer come to our class and lead our students and parents in making tallitot. Our students picked out backgrounds they wanted to use for the panels at the edges of the tallitot and atarah, the part over the neck, came up with the design they wanted to use, and got started using the different felt patterns Nancy had brought to cut out the shapes and letters they wanted on their tallit.  It was such a  pleasure seeing everyone’s creativity shine through- from suns to arks to leaves and doves, Jerusalem and even designs straight out of Dr. Who, we had some expert artists at work! And it was wonderful having so many of the parents with us, helping and guiding the projects. 

I can’t wait to see the finished products!
