Sarah's Album

Sarah celebrated her Bat Mitzvah at the beginning of the month. (According to Jewish law, when Jewish boys become 13 years old they become accountable for their actions and become a Bar Mitzvah. A girl becomes a Bat Mitzvah at the age of 12.) Sarah loves to sing and likes listening to pop music, particularly Ariana Grande. Other hobbies include going to the Zionist youth movement NOAM (an acronym for No'ar Masorti, Masorti Youth), texting her friends on her iPhone SE and eating sushi.
I have shown dark-haired Sarah wearing her NOAM sweatshirt. She is texting with one hand and is waving her other hand in the air, as if she is singing. To her left is a small Ariana Grande picture and to her right some music notes and some sushi and chopsticks. I added a Torah scroll, since she read from the Torah for her Bat Mitzvah, and also her school badge.
Her name appears in English and Hebrew, along with the date of the Bat Mitzvah. Two Star of Davids (known in Hebrew as the Shield of David or Magen David) in two corners of the cover add a little Jewish content.
As well as decorating the cover of Sarah's album, I also embellished five pages inside the book. The first page was reserved for Ariana Grande and some music notes. Next I created some paper sushi which my husband thought looked good enough to eat, followed by a page displaying the NOAM logo. Another page displayed Sarah's school badge, some books and a pencil, and finally, on the last page, a hand (presumably Sarah's!) is holding up her precious iPhone SE. Each page also featured a gold Star of David placed on a purple background, Sarah's favourite colour.
