Using Tooshem to Prepare for Rosh Hashanah & Yom Kippur

The Nitzanimers worked with toosheem to create their interpretation of shofarot, apples and honey, and challah to prepare Bayit Nitzanim for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

A curious Nitzanimer stated that matching the toosheem colors to the challah picture was a good first step to creating his drawing.

Another chose to illustrate the sounds of shofarot: “This one here [at the top] is a long sound, but not the longest ever. These blue ones here are the short sounds (as he demonstrates the sound for us “toot toot toot…”). And this one makes the biggest sound by far”

And some listened to the story of how shofarot are made “Did you know, to make a shofar you heat it up and twist, twist, twist…”. Each artist made their shofar unique by creating long ones, and short ones, twisty ones and straight ones.
