A Beth Jacob Learning Moment

calligraphy d.marcos The Beth Jacob community came together to learn the art of Hebrew calligraphy with Congregational Educator and sofer (scribe) D.Marcos Vital. Participants came together for three sessions to experience basic calligraphy, work on Hebrew lettering, and finally wrote with a reed and a quill. In addition to practicing the art of calligraphy, participants looked very closely at two of Beth Jacob’s beautiful Torahs as products of an intentional and detailed artistic effort, which participants have begun to experience themselves.

Adult Education at Beth Jacob is compelling and inviting, and we offer sustained and individual opportunities for adults of varied interests to deepen their relationship with their Jewishness and with each other.
