Across religious traditions, enclosure denotes holiness. in Judaism, we might think about the ark holding the Torahs, or the Chuppah that encloses the couple about to be married. In this workshop, we'll look at various portals, enclosures, and symbols in the Jewish tradition - including some images of Jewish sites from my recent trip to Morocco - and think about what these symbols mean in both the personal and the broader cultural sense. Finally, each person will make a collage featuring a cut-out enclosure/portal and a symbol of their choice, whether religious or personal. (Or take the collage home and add your own special memento later).
