Artful Weekend

Kol Ami religious school
kids make masterpieces
with artist Rosenstein.


orld-renowned artist
Mordechai Rosenstein spent
the weekend of Nov. 18-20
with Temple Kol Ami and B'nai Israel
Synagogue as an artist in residence.
Rosenstein attended and spoke at Kol
Ami's Friday night Shabbat service and
B'nai Israel's Shabbat morning service,
and then hosted a Saturday night event for
both West Bloomfield congregations.
The weekend culminated on Sunday
morning with a special program for
Kol Ami's religious school children.
Rosenstein first explained how he draws
Hebrew letters and uses his creativity to
make the letters look like other objects,
and then he passed out sheets of paper
with the beginning of an art project
already on them.
The children then created their own
masterpieces, with many of the kids writ-
ing their Hebrew names and decorating
them just like Rosenstein does in his
paintings. They were so excited to take
home their original Jewish artwork. Li
