Adar Art in Efrat

Sunday, March 1st, 2015

On Thursday evening, students at the Orot Etzion Boys Elementary School in Efrat reenacted different Biblical scenes as part of an interactive live art/Torah exhibition for the month of Adar.

Every floor, corner, class and even staircase of the school (think Jacob’s ladder) showed off exhibits and models the students put together by themselves.

In the exhibit above we see the story of Bilaam (yes, that’s a real donkey inside the school).

The sheep near the Beit Midrash seemed a little scared.

Below is a a 4th grader’s model of Joshua’s battle at Beit Horon made out of play-dough (each figurine shows a lot of individual detail):
