The Visual Arts Cohort encompasses many different Jewish Arts and mini-cohorts, such as Sewing, Cooking, Music, and more. Led by Eva-Lynn, the individual groups that form this Cohort meet as they like to bond over their various projects. Each “Jewish Art” attracts different members and non-members.
The Sewing cohort has completed its first Tallit Workshop. We had 5 participants and we learned a lot while enjoying each others’ company. We will repeat this workshop in early 2019. Everyone is welcome to either make a tallit of their own or one for their child. We have the fabrics, the expertise and the interest. There is a nominal charge. We will invite B’nei Mitzvah students when we tie 613 knots (tzitziit) on our talliitot, the only important part of any tallit.
The next activity we hope to have is making professional looking cards with Eva-Lynn, our talented artist in residence.
The Cooking (Food) cohort, led by Bev Auerbach and Susan Locker, has made award-winning hamantashen for Passover (the Crown was passed after the reading of the Megillah), bakes delicious scones and makes tea sandwiches our High Tea.
The Music Cohort aka JCo Choir needs a leader and we hope that our incredibly talented Jennifer Walsey will take this role on. Jennifer is a true professional with an operatic voice and her renditions of Hebrew prayers is all inspiring in particular when she joins Gabi on the Bima. We have several potential choir members who would love to join the Music Cohort as soon as it forms. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
