The theme is Hometown Nazareth and the children are experiencing what it may have been like when Jesus was a boy through Bible stories, crafts and songs. Other activities at the marketplace included: making a bracelet from beads made from clay and making their own pinch pots from clay; making a rock necklace or mosaic from the rock quarry; making a money box (tzedakah) found in the synagogue; tie dying using colors from Biblical time.
