In the beginning we read that G-d blessed the seventh day and declared it holy because on that day G-d ceased from all the work G-d had done. And then began the work of Man, who was created in the image of G-d. Man created Drama. Sometimes competition brought out the best in human nature. Hands, visible and invisible, appeared in many artworks. Family Drama is a given. We can find wisdom in the teachings, in the imagination and in our hands… And then began the work of the children.
Breaking Bloody Peace
Josephine, SMDS-RJA, 5th Grade
My challah cover represents conflict. The parallel designs on the edges are the two sides of the conflict. Even though each side is its own color scheme, you can see that they both have specks of the other. The squares of tape in the middle represent the fight itself, and the white in the middle of each side and on the edges suggest that even though each side is different, there are many times in fights when, deep down, both sides want the same thing.

My challah cover is about “chai” which means “Life”. The Jewish stars represent Judaism. The white tape lines represent peace. And the purple ones are royalty. Blue lines are the corners and yellow is light.
