Sukkah Mural and Dedication

We are proud to officially unveil our new mural in the Gottschalk Family Sukkah! TBS member Laura Walters, along with Brad Carney, an artist with Mural Arts Philadelphia, engaged people of all ages from our TBS Family last year to dream together about this new mural.  What has emerged it truly beautiful! The theme of the mural is Sukkot, and embedded in it are images that congregants of all ages created with Laura and Brad that depict the seven species from Israel, the mitzvot of Sukkot, Ushpizin, and even wildlife from Israel and New Jersey.  We are so grateful to Laura and Richard Walters and their family for supporting this project, the third mural they have helped us create with Brad here at TBS! After service on Sunday, October 8,  Laura will share the inspiration behind the many wonderful pieces on the mural.  We hope you can join us to celebrate the dedication of this fantastic new addition to TBS, which we will use to teach and learn about Sukkot for many years to come!
