In a hands-on workshop offered by the Konikoff Center for Learning of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater, community members explored the meaning of their name through a mystical interpretation of the aleph bet.

Josh Baum, illustrator of Malka’s Notebook: A Journey into the Mystical Aleph Bet, streamed his way into the room from Israel to share his experience creating the art featured in the book.

Filled with inspiration, workshop participants utilized a curriculum developed by the book’s author, Mira Z. Amiras, to take a deep dive into the kabbalistic interpretation of their name, then worked with local artist, Sharon Serbin, to illustrate their name in a meaningful way.
