Sketching Community: Honi’s Story and Our Circles with Jacqueline Nichols

Hosted By: Orange County Jewish Community Scholar Program ("CSP")

Taking inspiration from the Talmudic story of “Honi the Circle Maker,” this session examines friendships and the role of the individual within the community. What circles do we belong to, and what will remain of us after we have gone? Combining text study and art they’ll explore a known story from a new angle and see how it connects to each of us personally. Participants should have basic drawing materials (pen, pencil, paper) at hand if they want to engage with the optional drawing prompts. No prior drawing experience is needed.
