Shabbat Morning Kehillah Service

9:45 AM - 12:15 PMNOW Room, lower level

“CALL ALL WHO ARE SKILLFUL AND CREATIVE” (Exodus 28:3)

KEHILLAH* SERVICE for Parshat Tetzaveh – Saturday February 16, 9:45 am in the NOW Room

Calling fabric artists, textile lovers, yarn workers and otherwise inspired folks to explore creativity, and launch our new TORAH GARMENT project.

Following the model of the cover of our first Sefer Torah that has the word OR (light) at its center, we will explore the NESHAMAH, which will appear at the heart of the new cover that we will create for our second Sefer Torah. We are joined by a fabric artist who has prepared eight pieces of fabric for us, which can be filled using a range of embellishment techniques such as knitting, embroidery, applique, tatting, crochet, or quilting.

Rabbi Liz and our own artist Deborah will lead our Kehillah program that will include:

 – our lively musically-driven opening and closing segments of joyous song and prayer

 – an overview of our congregation’s previous sacred garment fabric projects (Torah mantles, ark curtain)

 – Limmud [text study] from the parshah and on the word neshamah [soul; breath; living being] to ground our vision and inspire our creativity

 – exploring the fabric, shape and design for our new Torah mantle

If you are interested in crafting a segment, or intrigued by the concept of neshamah, don’t miss this gathering. (If you can’t make it, and are interested in collaborating on the project, please be in touch with Rabbi Liz).

*KEHILLAH = Community, for every Age, Heart, Body & Soul!

Each Kehillah Service features a short musically—driven service and a potpourri of activities led by ORH members and Rabbi Liz, addressing a theme or concept related to the season or the weekly torah portion.
