Edible Parsha Project: Parshat Ki Teitzei

04 Sep 2014

black-licoriceShabbat fun for children is given a fresh and tasty twist with Edible Parsha projects. These easy to create, hands-on treats are based within context of weekly Torah portion for children of all ages and stages.

Edible Parsha is a creation by Batya Jacob, director of the International Jewish Resource Center for Inclusion and Special Education, a division of Yachad/NJCD.

In this week’s parsha, Moshe explains many laws to the Jewish people. Among them are tying fringes to your four corner garment called tzitzit.

Take eight strands of licorice to represent the eight strings of the tzitizit and bunch together. Ties them at the top with an additional piece of licorice.

You can use thin licorice strings and braid them together as well.
