Royzelach paper rose/snowflake class in person this Sunday in Berkeley

I’ll be teaching how to make these royzelach (paper cut-out roses) at the Shavu’ot, (pre) Tikun this Sunday at the JCC /east Bay. But if you can’t come in person, here’s a video of me teaching it. However, it’s easier and more fun to learn it in person.

There’s a midrash (folkloric legend) that when we received the Torah/10 Commandments at Mt. Sinai, we received them with all our senses. There was thunder, lightning, and the smell of roses. Royzelach (roses in Yiddish) are paper cut-outs that were used to decorate windows for Shavuot in Eastern Europe. Shavuot is the Jewish holiday that celebrates receiving the Torah, which starts this year on the evening of June 11, 2024.
