Paint, Pray, Love: A Tallit Workshop

Donning a tallit, or Jewish prayershawl, can be a transformative spiritual experience for your personal prayer and meditation. Wearing one that you create yourself is even more powerful!

Come join us in community to learn about the beautiful mitzvah of wearing a tallit in prayer, and to create your own richly painted silk tallit using lustrous, delicious silk charmeuse fabric!

This workshop will be held in three sessions, taught by Stephanie Brown, Ner Shalom member and former owner of Simcha Silks. No prior experience needed. Limited to 8 people. Held at "Unfold Your Creative Spirit" art studio at Ner Shalom.

Want to create a tallit out of another material? Not into painting? Write to Stephanie at (Reduced rate may be available if you bring your own fabric.)

Cost (including materials and sewing): $95 for Ner Shalom members; $115 for others. Add a tallit bag for an additional $25.
