Yom HaAtzmaut 70 Years

National Art Contest for Children




One of the exciting initiatives we have planned to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem is a National Art Contest for Children.


Please see the poster below for detailed instructions about how to participate. All artwork should connect with the theme “Yerushalayim HaBenuya K’Ir Shechubra Lah Yachdav” - “When Jerusalem is built up, it is a united city.”

To the Students:

When you are ready to submit your artwork please scan your entry and email it to our office (office@rza.org). Nothing should be mailed to our office. All art will be judged online. Upon receipt we will send you a confirmation email.

The top winners will receive cash prizes and will have their artwork featured on the RZA-Mizrachi website. Framed certificates will also be presented to the top winners in the contest.

The contest has now been extended until December 31st, 2017. 

To the General Public:

If you know of people who are available to join our committee and assist in expanding awareness of the RZA-Mizrachi Children’s Art Contest and encouraging the participation of schools, synagogues and Jewish Community Centers in your local city, please let us know. Committee members might include art teachers in your local day school, principals, special activities coordinators, artists and those with a passion for the arts.


We have a curator/chairperson who is working closely with committee members to help coordinate and achieve maximum participation. Our goal is to have a committee member in every major city in the United States. The committee member may also initiate local award ceremonies.


Please distribute the attached flyer to your local area schools, synagogues, JCC’s and any other Jewish Institutions you think would benefit from joining the RZA-Mizrachi Children’s Art Contest. We are happy to mail you copies of the poster as well.


With warm regards,


Rabbi Gideon Shloush

National Director, RZA-Mizrachi
