About the event
Beginning the evening of September 20th, the Gordon Jewish Community Center and the Nashville Jewish community celebrate the Jewish fall harvest festival of Sukkot, with our Sukkah Collaborative Art Exhibit, Under One Roof: Hope and Renewal. In its fifth year, the exhibit features collaborative works of art created by over 30 local Nashville organizations whom explore the theme Hope and Renewal. Within the Jewish culture, hope is a value that has been passed down through biblical stories, shared catastrophic experiences, and hardships in creating new beginnings. Hope is an enduring gift which we see present from generation to generation. It is the catalyst for change that ushers in renewal and lays the foundation for us to build a better future.
Our mural is a joint project of two H.A.P.I mental health centers in Gallatin, Tennessee led by teaching Artist Marlynda Augelli. The theme chosen was “Hope for the Flowers” inspired by a little book written by Trina Paulus.
“Tell me, sir, what is a butterfly?”
“It’s what you are meant to become. It flies with beautiful wings and joins the earth to heaven.
It drinks only nectar from the flowers and carries the seed of LOVE from one flower to another.
Without butterflies, the world would soon have few flower.”
-Trina Paulus HOPE FOR THE FLOWERS
The flower is God’s finest workmanship in the world. It is His finest Gift to mankind.
“Where flowers Bloom so does HOPE.” -Lady Bird Johnson
