Hiddur Mitzvah: What our sacred objects can teach us about Judaism and ourselves.

We use objects to help us in performing ritual tasks. We need a cup to hold the wine for kiddush, We use a cloth to cover the challah on shabbat. Where do these objects come from? Why do we use the ones we use? What do our traditions tell us about these Items. We will review some traditional texts and share stories about our own items.
