304,805: Letters in a Torah scroll.
3,320: Years since the first Torah was handwritten on raw parchment.
1: Chance to try it yourself.
Children explore every element of the Torah-making experience during this spellbinding event. Uncover the history of hundred-year-old scrolls, see and handle unfinished hides for parchment, mix ink, fashion goose-feather quills and try your own scribal-scribble!
Workshop includes Torahs, Tefillin and Mezuzot of different traditions that survived persecution through the ages.
