Jewish Papercuts in a Nutshell

Hosted By: Global Jewish Pen Pal Program

Learn about traditional Jewish papercuts, a popular art form that took its inspiration mostly from the Tanakh and Talmud.

The Zoom workshop consists of two parts: theoretical and practical. In the theoretical part, we will shortly dive into the nature and purpose of this art form; we will look at the papercuts and its symbols from a historical and cultural perspective.

The second part will be a practical one, all participants will have the opportunity to get hands on with this marvelous forgotten piece of Jewish folklore and create their very own papercuts for the upcoming Jewish holiday Shavuot!

The event listed here is hosted by a third party. My Jewish Learning/70 Faces Media is not responsible for its content or for errors in the listing.


Global Jewish Pen Pal Program

The Global Jewish Pen Pal Program matches Jews from around the world as pen pals in order to help people learn more about Jewish life in other countries. The goal of the Global Jewish Pen Pal Program is to remedy the lack of connections between Jews from all over the world, specifically between Jews in different parts of the diaspora. The Global Jewish Pen Pal program also facilitates virtual conversations with Jews from all over the world.
