This workshop will be an opportunity to get your hands tied up in our traditions! Come ready to engage in hiddur mitzvah, whether that's through tying your tzitzit on an existing tallis or embroidering-weaving-quilting-beading-sewing the whole shebang! Any and everyone is welcome and desired -- no matter how you relate to Judaism or art.

Bio: Léah Miller [they/them] lives in Philadelphia and is in their third year of rabbinical school at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. They're going into their second year as the rabbinic intern at SAJ Judaism that Stands for All in New York. Léah is a crafter—of mended denim, knit creatures, Judaica and jewelry, blessings, and theatrical lighting. When Léah’s not learning Torah or tying tzitzit, they’re stringing up fairy lights, piecing together a jigsaw puzzle, or getting covered in paint.
