Take your family to an incredible woodworking workshop and walk away with handmade pieces of Judaica!
Step inside an actual Judaica workshop in the Gush Etzion area and learn how to design Judaica pieces, use the specialized tools, and create your own beautiful piece of art.
In a bright, air-conditioned work space, you will have the opportunity to take the wood from its raw form and create it into a finished piece, using your hands and some of our machinery. You will learn all aspects of the process along the way, including cutting, sanding, filing, gluing and varnishing.
Do you know the story of the Lone Oak Tree on the road to Rosh Tzurim or the cherry wood found at the Cherry Festival each year? Use local woods, hear their story, and learn how the grain runs through your piece and enhances it.
Projects you can choose from:
Here are some of our favorite The Workshop projects:
Honey dish for Rosh Hashana, salt dish for the Shabbat table, Sevivon (dreidel), candle holders for Shabbat and Chanuka, and more.
Each family member creates a part of a piece, and at the end all the pieces are connected to form a beautiful piece that will decorate your home.
Who is The Workshop for?
The sessions run for 2.5 hours and are suitable for everyone age 6 and up (we’ve had participants up to the age of 90 so far – and many ages in between, and the adults seem to enjoy it just as much as the kids).
Safety is paramount and all the participants will be issued safety equipment as needed. Each participant will leave at the end of the session with a finished piece.
Who runs The Workshop?
The Workshop is run by a husband/wife team living in the beautiful hills of Gush Etzion, Israel. Inspired daily by the surroundings, Mandy and Jeremy Broder are always thinking of new and exciting ways to bring smiles to their client’s faces with personalized pieces of art.
