Please join Student Rabbi Faryn for a special workshop: a 3-session tzitzit making workshop, where we follow the process of making tzitzit from sheep to finished product.

For this session: What does wool have to do with shabbat and sacred space? And how does that relate to tzitzit? Join Student Rabbi Faryn and Karen from The Sheep to Shawl Experience for an experiential, hands-on workshop where we will answer this question and learn how to process wool and spin it into yarn, on the way to making our tzitzit. 

This session will take place in-person at Oseh Shalom.

Tzitzit are an ancient technology that Jews have used to connect to the Divine, as described in the 3rd paragraph of the Shema (Numbers 15:37-41). How would they have been spun? What are the issues around making them? How does one get from sheep to tzitzit and a tallit anyway? This special opportunity will give us the chance to root ourselves in text and then get hands on as we explore these questions and build a more meaningful and personal relationship with this powerful technology.
