Parshat Tetzaveh - Finding meaningful instructions in the Torah
This week's parasha includes instructions regarding the oil used for a menorah, the garments for the Kohamin, and the structure of the mishkan.

Included is the description of the breastplate, or 'choshen', worn
by the High Priest. It is rectangular in shape, adorned with
12 stones that represent the 12 tribes of Israel.

The High Priest’s breastplate in last week’s parasha is described as a rectangular plate adorned with 12 stones representing the 12 tribes of Israel. As a group, we will explore 12 qualities that we wish to cultivate in the world, and using collage, create new narratives for 'breastplates' of our time. A colourful mash-up of thread, paper and tape - fuelled by your ingenuity - will create original and inspiring 'gems' to be shared with the Limmud community by the end of the day.
