Cutting Paper in Orange County
at Temple Beth Sholom

What a pleasure it was to spend my Sunday at Temple Beth Sholom in Irvine, California, to cut paper and make art with almost 50 people from their community (including participants from their high school program)! The theme was identity, and participants had to design a papercut that reflected some aspect of their Jewish identity. Lots of names, in Hebrew and English, as well as stories from the Torah, symbols of joy and celebration, and even a pet chicken!
