745 members of the PJCC community, ages 3-90, came together over the course of July-October to design and paint a lasting piece of art, a vibrant "Grow Justice" mural on the wall in the PJCC Hamlin garden. Led by PJCC Artist-in-Residence Jay Wolf Schlossberg-Cohen, the mural reflects attitudes on justice. Its five sections mirror the five books of the Torah.
The mural had its grand unveiling on October 20 at the PJCC's Fall Harvest Festival and Community Mural Celebration, where 125 people celebrated its completion. Among them were Taube Foundation for Jewish Life & Culture Chairman Tad Taube and Executive Director Shana Penn who gave opening remarks praising the mural's reflection of the power of Jewish Peoplehood.
The Taube Foundation for Jewish Life & Culture supports Jewish Peoplehood programming at the PJCC and other Bay Area JCCs.
