Then — build a local synagogue out of Lego blocks and maybe win a prize!
The Culture and Heritage Department of the Bas Rhin Jewish Consistory is sponsoring a “SYNA EN LEGO” competition, under the motto “Build, Share, Win!”.
To participate, choose a synagogue in the Department in Bas Rhin, and then make a reproduction of it using Lego blocks — there are no restrictions as to size. (And though there don’t seem to be age restrictions, either, the contest seems to be mainly directed toward children…)
Bring your model to the office of the Consistory before March 22:
All the models will be displayed — and the three judged then most beautiful will received an award (so far undisclosed….)
The Consistory manages 27 synagogues in Bas Rhin. Click HERE to see 14 of them, with more set to be added.
