The Mystery of Tekhelet Solved

The Torah mandates that one string of the Tzizit should be dyed with Tekhelet which can procured from a snail known as the chilazon. For hundreds of years the identity of the chilazon was forgotten. Many attempts were made to identify the chilazon, and about 30 years ago the identity of the chilazon was finally unraveled.

In this session you will learn all about the sleuthing for the chilazon, and you will be able to produce the Tekhelet in a hands on workshop.

Session is appropriate for 4th Grade to Adults

Cost of Session: $250 (Includes one Tekhelet set). Each additional Tekhelet set is $15.
