It is the 64th anniversary of the formation of the state of Israel. To celebrate, our synagogue is having a get together of the members that traveled to Israel in February, after Friday night services tonight. Part of the celebration includes a slide show of our trip. Another part of the celebration will include the display of my fiber book about the trip.
If you read my Wednesday's Wanderings during my trip, you may recognize a couple of the pages.
|ISRAEL book cover|
|Page 1. Inside Independence Hall. Take note of the sheckels in the organza pouch.|
|Page 2. In celebration of a Shabbat dinner at an Israeli home.|
|Page 3. I fell in love with mosaics during the trip.|
This is my version based on a mosaic in Acco, at Or Torah.
|Page 4. Old City of Jerusalem|
|Page 5. Planting of trees with the Jewish National Fund.|
|Page 6. Map of Israel with many of the locations we visited.|
I also decided to make a piece to thank our fearless leader and rabbi. It included our group photo at the independence Museum, a few photos printed on fabric and a couple of scheckels stitched on.
|Thank you Rabbi Riegler for sharing your view of Israel with me.|
