Jewish Water Puzzle! A city game centring around the role of water in Judaism (PL)

29.06.2022 - 13:00 / Kazimierz | Start JCC Krakow, ul. Miodowa 24

The game consists of going through seven stations located around Kazimierz in Krakow and it begins and ends at the JCC building on Miodowa. At each site, participants will learn about the different meanings of water in Jewish history, midrash, or everyday Judaism, starting with netilat yadayim – the rite of washing hands. At the following stop, the participants will learn about rain stories in the Talmud, the role of the mikveh (ritual bath), the history of the flood, the Jewish rite of Tashlikh, or the figure of Miriam, the sister of Moses, and what it has to do with water. At the final location, participants will learn about the symbolism of fish in Judaism and the meaning of crossing the Red Sea. At each station, players solve various tasks (quizzes, puzzles, scratch cards, art exercises) and receive stamps with Hebrew letters, which at the end will form an inscription.
