The Center's opening event kicked off Saturday May 7 with a musical Havdalah led by Rabbi David Shneyer followed by an evening of music, art, and conversation. Parents and students from Am Kolel in Beallsville went through the process of creating a sculpture out of raw material from start to finish, ending with custom piece of their own. This is an activity that we hope to have regularly scheduled through the Hiddur Mitzvah Center. If you are interested, give us a call at 301-493-5577 to plan out an activity.
Sunday afternoon was the art gallery opening for a group show featuring Katherine Janus Kahn, Ronny Tabeka, and Gary. The day ended with Mother's Day Alternative Program - "Keep the light alive." Generations creating their own family heirloom Shabbat candlesticks together.
Sunday May 15 we hosted an Artisites Guild for Judaic Art group show.
