rayer books need special treatment, especially in
the hands of youngsters.
To enhance the value and sense of accom-
plishment when receiving their first siddur
(prayer book), many Jewish children in the Detroit area
join with their mothers in needlepointing a cover for
their siddur.
"It started years ago with Hillel Day School first-
graders," says Rachel Einstandig of Rachel's Needlepoint
in Southfield. Now students at Adat Shalom, Beth
Shalom, Shir Tikvah and Yeshivat Akiva also work on
the covers with their moms.
Rachel has several hundred patterns to choose from,
and will custom design a pattern for an additional
charge. She estimates her shop helps 80 new prayer
readers each year, including students in the Montreal
area who send for the patterns.
Most mothers bring their children to Rachel's to select
a pattern. "The students enjoy having the input,"
Rachel says. Its real important to them."
The projects are colorful and the holes in the plastic
canvases are large enough for little fingers to help.
Plastic canvas is used for its durability and no finish-
ing work is involved. Parents pay $20-25 to do a front
cover and approximately $15 to add a back cover.
The project takes about 10 hours to complete, Rachel
estimates, "or a little more if the mother is new to
needlepoint. Mostly, they do everything themselves and
I teach them how to sew it together."

Family. Pleasure

One Hillel mom who was new to needlepoint, Miriam
Foner Gould of Farmington Hills, enjoyed the siddur
cover project so much that she now is doing three
needlepoint projects simultaneously.
"It was my very first time, but I'm addicted now,"
Gould says. Her son, Adam, 7, picked the colors for his
siddur cover and did some of the background stitches.
