Shavuot means Cheesecake… and Paper dolls!

Last year I made up some paper dolls from the story of Ruth, which is read on Shavuos. I wish I had time to post a little bit more about Ruth and why we read about her on this holiday but you can go to and read up on her yourself! I have to get back to my drawing :)

Hope the kids enjoy these, and gives you a few minutes of peace and quiet. Chag Sameach!

    Wow this is amazing, I am a teacher and I was always struggling to find beautiful yet Tznius and Aidel Pictures that would represent the Jewish women. I would love if there was more like of Sara, Rivka, Rochel, Leah and other Jewish Women

      I’d love Sarah, Rivkah, Rochel & Leah too as well as Avraham Avenu, Moshe….. all of the traditional men and women so our children can use then to act out the Torah stories etc…. I think a self published book is called for to purchase on Amazon!
