What happens at a Kol HaOt Educational Program?
First, tourists are introduced to a variety of artworks that express Jewish values and ideas, in vibrant and creative visual forms. Presenters often include leading Judaica artists themselves.
‘I loved hearing David Moss’s explanation of his work.’
‘It brought spirit, religion and our tradition into our program.’
Then comes the challenge: Participants design their own visual languages in special hands-on projects that illuminate a traditional Jewish text or concept.
‘The prospect of creating my own scroll was scary, but the doing was fun!’
‘The hand scroll narrative is so relevant to the program we are on.’
And now…presenting…! Participants take to the stage to share and explain their projects, which become treasured keepsakes of their own.
'The opportunity to work on this [Mapping the Journey] project and to share it became very emotional and we will never forget it.'

'This Kol HaOt program helped me to reflect on the past 10 days in Israel, and brought the whole experience back to me.’
‘I loved all of it! The session was a perfect balance of listening,
interacting, and hands-on!'
