Core Values Banners
A synagogue embodies the values of its community. In 2010 Rabbi Lance Sussman of Congregation Keneseth Israel approached me to create an installation based on the seven core values that are the foundation of his congregation:
Tikkun Olam—Social Justice or Repair the World
Hiddur Mitzvah—Arts and Culture
T’fillot—Prayer and Spirituality
Ahavat Yisrael—Love of Israel or Jewish Pride
Yahadut Mitkademet—Reform Judaism
Rabbi Sussman envisioned large banners filling the upper reaches of the synagogue’s lobby, and wanted to use the same images for outreach projects, religious school materials, and small displays throughout the building.
