(ZM) Make Your Own Tzedakah Box

Sunday, September 10, 2023 24 Elul 5783

2:00 PM - 3:30 PMZoom Room Heh

Make your own tzedakah box using a wooden box from the craft store! All ages are invited, and this is a great project to do with friends or family.

Let's learn together about the Jewish concept of a tzedakah boxes, and then talk about organizations or causes we might want to donate our tzedakah money to, that feel near and dear to our hearts. We will have a short breakout room time to chat with fellow students about the topics we discussed. Then we will have an hour to make the boxes. Please RSVP to receive the supply list and handouts in advance.

We will decorate with Elmer's glue and colored papers: tissue paper, origami paper, wrapping paper, collage paper.  When complete, we will paint a layer of matte acrylic medium over it to seal the paper, then dry it with a hair dryer. Or you can paint the box with acrylic paint and dry it the same way, sealing it with the matte acrylic finish as a top coat. We will pick a Jewish design or symbol(s) to place on the tzedakah box either during or after the first layer of decoration. If you want to attach beads, sequins, or jewels with a glue gun, have those ready at home too.  

At the end, you will have a precious place to put tzedakah money before it goes to the charity of your choice.

Elul Tov!

This event is being offered as part of Havurah Shalom’s celebration of the Hebrew month of Elul! As Elul precedes Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, we use this time for study, reflection, and mental and spiritual preparation. All are invited to attend our gatherings, which span spiritual, text-based, political, ecological and creative topics. We hope you will find them enriching, fun, moving, and worthwhile. You can find the full list of classes here, or see the calendar. For questions about this programming, please reach out to Rachel Pollak.
