The Bernard Zell Anshe Emet Day School

The Bernard Zell Anshe Emet Day School received a Czech torah which had been rescued from the Holocaust.

The 8th grade class started a project to research the torah’s origin and history.

The History class did the research and came up with the concepts for the torah cover, ark curtain, and binder.

Then the same class refined their vision in Art class, resulting in the designs for the three items. We were given the exciting and challenging task of translating their color drawings into practical, finished fabric art pieces.

As you can see from the photos, we stayed true to their original artwork and vision.
