Paint, perform, and doodle your way through the Jewish holidays!

Guide your students through a process of unlocking the meaning of each holiday and its values through artistic projects and concepts. 

Make drawing in response to hearing the shofar; create a nature collage for Tu BiShevat; act out the movement of a lulav.

Make, Create, Celebrate uses art as a way to help students connect with the underlying values of the holidays in a personal way, free from explaining the how-tos of each holiday.

Not an artist? Don't worry about it! These projects are about self-expression and ideas, and therefore, are for everyone. By the time students have compelte the holiday cycle, they will have created a portfolio full of their own work reflecting Jewish values.
