A Prayer for Peace


In this program, we explore the meaning of the concept of peace in Judaism, through a few different texts and works of art. The Priestly Blessing (Birkat Kohanim), Rav Nahman of Breslov’s Prayer for Peace as well as ancient verses of the Prophets all come together as a basis for our process. We discover creative visual representations of these texts and then combine head, hearts and hands to create our own collage interpretations of peace, based on Biblical Parallelism. 


‘The opportunity to work on this [Mapping the Journey] project and to share it became very emotional and we will never forget it.'

Kol HaOt imparts Jewish values, texts and history through a creative synthesis of the visual and performing arts.

We believe that harnessing the arts, via our interactive programs, is a necessity, not a luxury, and is an effective model for Jewish education, identity and community.
