Knitting and Crocheting Workshop

Works of fiber are described in details in the scriptures – relating to weaving. In the early years pre and post the birth of Israel Knitting and Crocheting took hold. Sweaters and hats were needed for the cold damp winters, and a crochet Kippah was all the rage.

Join our own master knitter Beth Mukamal as she guides you in crafting your own knitted or crocheted creation. Make for yourself, your family or to give away to charities in Israel.
