Engagement and amazement!

Torah Stitch By Stitch is first and foremost a project of engagement. Two years after our launch on Shavuot/Pentacost in Toronto we continue to be amazed – and blessed – by our stitchers’ unique accounts of the profound ways in which their participation has affected them.

From Amy, who decided to study Hebrew and become Bat Mitzvah . . .




to Pat, who stitched many hours by the bedside of dear ones . . .
Amy Green invite for BP
to Jorie, who arranged to hear her words . . .




to Cheryl, who studied and found meaning in what seemed a rather dull passage . . .
Jori chanting for wp
to Mother Xavier, a scholar of Hebrew, who shared her hymn with us . . .



We welcome your stories and pledge to include as many as possible in the catalogue and archives of this project.

We are humbled that – like many pieces of cloth through history – these reflect or signify a change that was ready to happen. And we are truly moved that TSBS could be a “midwife” to these developments.
