Jewish Heroes and Superheroes: Creating Jewish Comics
In this session, we will explore what it means to be a Jewish hero and create our own using comic art. Participants in grades 2-4 are invited to explore Jewish texts, Israeli and Jewish artwork and comic art to examine how Jews have seen heroes in different ways and invented their own. Then, they will explore their own ideas about who is a hero and create a comic to reflect this idea.

Golem: Making a Friendly Monster
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.
