Shine the Light Mosaic is Finally Installed

After months of winter weather and struggles to arrange an installation, the Shine the Light mosaic finally went up at Temple Shalom in Newton.  I’m a bit behind in my documentation, but here’s a look at the installation in April.  You’ll see that after the pieces were hung they covered them with paper tablecloths to keep them a secret until their unveiling at a family service a few weeks later!

 The first piece, made by more than 300 people:IMG_6588 copyThe flames of the oil lamp, designed and built by 27 3rd-6th grade students:
