Welcome to Lab/Shul, an artist-driven, everybody-friendly, God-optional, pop up, experimental community for sacred Jewish gatherings based in NYC and reaching the world.

Sew-In: Patchwork Prayer Shawl Project

  • 04:00 PM
  • Museum of Jewish Heritage - 36 Battery Pl, New York, NY 10280

On May 5 2016, Yom HaShoah, join Lab/Shul at the Museum of Jewish Heritage – Living Memorial to the Holocaust, to co-create the world’s largest prayer shawl.

Join us to stitch, sew, tie a knot, support, donate fabric and witness the co-creation of ritual art transformed out of memories, stories and the woven narratives of our collective histories.

Lab/Shul’s Patchwork Prayer Shawl Project collects prayer shawls and fabrics from friends in our community to weave a super-size ritual object that will be displayed over the summer at the Museum and then used at our sacred celebrations.

We are proud and honored to present this project in conjunction with the Museum’s special exhibition, Stitching History From the Holocaust, on view through August 14, 2016.
