The Workshop Gush Etzion – Interactive Woodworking Judaica Experience

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.

The Workshop

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.

You will get to work with your hands and on some of our machines in a safe but fun environment.

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:

Individual Projects:

Honey dish for Rosh Hashana, salt dish for the Shabbat table, Sevivon (dreidel), candle holders for Shabbat and Chanuka, and more.

Family Projects

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 between 2.5 – 3 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).

They are happy to have younger kids with the group, but for reasons of safety and insurance, children under 6 will not be allowed to use the machinery unassisted.

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.

Now is the perfect time to visit their website to see what you can find. Great gifts for Pesach and throughout the year. I personally love the customized Bar/Bat Mitzvah gifts, the special prayer for a doctor as well as the prayers for a new house.

Mandy & Jeremy can create custom pieces of Judaica that can be shipped worldwide.

Whether you’d like a piece of wall-art to enjoy while you’re spending more time at home due to the outbreak of the Corona Virus, or practical Judaica pieces for Shabbat or the upcoming Chag, please contact Mandy support an Israeli business during this difficult time. Contact Mandy
