Passover is around the corner! Are you ready? In the Haggadah, we read that the Divine reaches towards us with an outstretched arm. Are we prepared to reach back? Come activate your imagination and immerse yourself in a unique blend of Jewish learning, hands-on creative inquiry and community making. In this workshop we’ll delve into traditional and modern Passover texts, looking at these sources through the lens of our own life experience. We’ll then open them up through creative exploration to add our stories and images to those of the tradition. Join the Jewish Studio Project for a dynamic afternoon that will open your heart and ready you for the Festival of Freedom. Open to all, no experience required or expected. 

The Jewish Studio Project activates creativity in individuals and communities to reclaim Jewish values, make meaning in our lives and restore hope to the world. Come as you are.
