Feedback form is now closed.
The workshop discusses Torah scrolls using visual aids such as animal hides, parchments, feather quills, ink, Atzei Chayim (Torah poles) and posters. It provides an overview of the tools, materials, and methods used in the writing of a Torah scroll, as well as the actual writing process and its laws. The highlight of the program is the actual hands-on writing of letters on a parchment. Each child will have the opportunity to write their name in Torah script on a piece of real parchment, which is in turn fastened to a pin to create a name tag.

Recommended ages 4-12.
