JKHA Collaborates on Art Project for Israel

Artist Rabbi Yitzchok Moully from Moully Art visited JKHA as seventh graders engaged in an interactive and meaningful art project. Seventh graders made two murals with inspirational stencils with messages of encouragement and celebrating Israel and Jewish pride. One mural will be hung in JKHA—and one will be sent to a school in Israel.

The second mural will be hung in the school of Eitan Yahalomi, a 13 year old from Kibbutz Nir Oz who was freed from Hamas captivity in November (while his father remains hostage in Gaza). Seventh grader Shai Merlin and his family have connected with Eitan and the Yahalomi family’s story over the past eight months. JKHA thanks the Merlin family for supporting this project in honor of Shai’s bar mitzvah. The JKHA mural was ready by the end of the day and is already hanging proudly in the hall outside the Jocheved Orbach Dining Hall.
