Look at Family Dresdner’s (coronavirus) Shavuos crafts! Aren’t they magnificent?

We did this great DIY scratch art:


  1. Color a white paper with pastels. Press hard and make sure no white is showing through.
  2. Mix black paint with some dishwashing liquid.
  3. Paint on top of the pastels using the soap-paint mixture.
  4. After it dries use a wood stick, penny, or plastic utensil to create scratch art. Enjoy!

Who Would Have Believed

Who would have believed that corona would come till here,

And that some people wouldn’t even have time to sit down on a chair,

And need to be quarantined for something that happened over there (China)?

Who would have believed that school would be on the phone instead of in a classroom,

And some stores would need to be closed like a store that sells perfume?

Who would have believed that hospitals wouldn’t have enough doctors because of all their patients,

And people can’t go to Florida for vacation,

And instead need to be in isolation?

Who would have believed that shuls would need to be closed and everyone will need to daven on the street,

And people would need to stand away from each other, six feet?

Who would have believed that people would walk on the streets wearing masks,

And people would only be on the streets for important tasks?

Who would have believed that 13th Avenue would be quiet all day,

And people wouldn’t have the money to pay?

Who would have believed that people wouldn’t be able to travel from place to place,

And you wouldn’t be able to stand next to someone, face to face?

We see now that Hashem can make something happen in a blink of an eye,

For Hash em it’s as easy as a pie.

Im yirtzeh Hashem, the Geulah will come very soon,

Before the end of June.
