"Open Your Eyes" to Our Beautiful New Mosaic at Temple Shalom, Newton MA
Artist Joshua Winer, together with a committee of clergy and Temple Shalom members, designed a new, breathtaking tile mosaic for the entryway entitled Open Your Eyes. The mosaic celebrates the generations who established, nurtured, and sustained our Temple Shalom community since its its founding in 1950. Open Your Eyes also lovingly represents Temple Shalom’s core values of inclusion, community, and tikkun olam (repairing the world).
The central text inscribed on the mosaic is from Genesis:
Achen, yesh Adonai bamakom hazeh v’anochi lo yadati.
Surely, God is in this Makom, this place, and I did not know.
