Beshalach 16:22 - Double Portion for Shabbat

TorahLine Torah Game Card Exodus 16:22Here's the progression from sketch to the TorahLine game card for Beshalach 16:22, Double Portion for Shabbat:

on the sixth day they gathered twice as much [manna]...and all the leaders of the congregation came and told Moshe.


וַיְהִי‭  ‬בַּיּוֹם‭ ‬הַשִּׁשִּׁי‭ ‬לָֽקְטוּ‭ ‬לֶחֶם‭ ‬מִשְׁנֶה‭ ‬שְׁנֵי‭ ‬הָעֹמֶר‭ ‬לָֽאֶחָד‭ ‬וַיָּבֹאוּ‭ ‬כָּל–נְשִׂיאֵי‭ ‬הָֽעֵדָה‭ ‬

וַיַּגִּידוּ‭ ‬לְמֹשֶֽׁה‭:‬


Exodus 16:22

Our illustrator Guri created a picture of lots of mana. Just prior to this verse the Jewish people had been gathering mana each day of the week. Everyone ended up with the same amount per person, exactly an omer. However on Friday, the day before Shabbat everyone ended with a double portion. No one had told them, though G-d had told Moshe.

Laura our art director stated, "I think it needs to convey a double portion! Can you do two smaller side by side with swirls for scent above?"

Exodus 16:22 Double PortionGuri stated, "Yeah no problem I will make the adjustments."

Laura's feedback, "Cool! but kind of looks like challah."

Guri came back with another version

Exodus 16:22

and then LOVE IT!
