House of Israel | Dead Sea Scroll Exhibit | Sundays 12-4 p.m. | Ends May 31

Two works of art created from matza will bring Spring and Passover to the House of Israel. The matza mosaic of a sheep inspired by famous Israeli artist Menashe Kadishman is meant to invoke symbol of the Paschal Lamb. The matza Dead Sea Scroll sculpture will sit atop the House’s permanent stone rendition of the Dead Sea Scrolls to offer a seasonal aspect to this historical symbol of the Land of Israel.

The pieces were created by students in 2nd-4th and 6th grade at Tifereth Israel Synagogue’s Abraham Ratner Torah School under the guidance of Rachel Naor. Students particularly enjoyed grinding matza up to make it look like sand, softening matza in order to mold it and assembling the colorful pieces of matza that they had painted into a mosaic image.

You can visit the Dead Sea Scroll exhibit at the House of Israel through May 31, 2015.
