Here Comes the Bride, All Dressed in Leather and Tefillin

A collaboration between Shenkar College fashion design students and Beit Hatfutsot yields innovative bridal gowns inspired by synagogues, Jewish themes and family history.

The 14 students enrolled in an advanced-level bridal gown design course held their first day of classes at a rather unusual site: at Beit Hatfutsot – the Museum of the Jewish People’s permanent exhibit of synagogues from around the world.
