Golem: Making a Friendly Monster

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this session, children in grades 1-3 will be invited to learn about the story and history of the Golem myth. They will think about what it means to be human and whether or not they believe people have a Neshama, a soul. They will consider who the hero is in the story and who is the monster. Finally, they will have the opportunity to engage in a meaningful and exciting artistic experience, using sculpture to express their ideas of a monster who can protect us.
