Ritual Lab

Bring your creativity to life by making your own collection of Jewish ritual objects for Shabbat and holidays! In a series of weekly arts workshops, we’ll learn about a Jewish ritual then create the object you’ll need to perform that ritual in your home.  The items you create will be deeply personal, based on and informed by your aesthetic and your personal connection to that ritual or holiday.  No prior knowledge about Jewish holidays or ritual is necessary, you’ll learn during our workshops!

We’ll be working with fused glass, ceramic painting, embroidery, hand dipped wax, wire/beading and glass etching. At the end of the semester, you will have created a mezuzah, Seder plate, kiddush cup, matzah bag, havdalah candle and spice bag, and Shabbat candle sticks that we hope will bring meaning and joy to your celebration of Shabbat and holidays for years to come! All materials are covered by Columbia/Barnard Hillel.
