Kamtza and Bar Kamtza Puppets

9 Jul


This is version one of a free template to make Kamtza and Bar Kamtza puppets. Children can color them, cut them out and attach them to popsicle sticks. There is a small script on the template page that you are welcome to use with small children. However, it is in no way intended as a definitive telling of the story. Usually when we tell the story we add in details like-

  • How the Romans expected the Jews to show allegience and why not giving a korban was such a problem.
  • We ask how would you have felt if you had been Bar Kamtza/Kamtza.
  • What would you have done if you were at the party.
  • Discuss the story in terms of bullying/queen bees/bystanders

We ask alot of questions. This is a story we tell often throughout the year.

This version was done quickly (note the similarities to the Purim cupcake wrappers). Apologies for the anachronistic way of dress for the Jews. Maybe I’ll update it next time.
