or 56 years, the Jewish

Community Center of
Metropolitan Detroit has
been home to the Jewish
Parents Institute, a family-oriented
Sunday school that presents a cultur-
ally based Jewish education.
Now, a grant from the Jewish
Federation of Metropolitan Detroit
has helped the school give something
beautiful and lasting to the JCC.
With the help of artists Gail
Rosenbloom Kaplan and Dani Katsir,
JPI students created a 4- by 8-foot
mosaic centered on themes of
mitzvot, scripture and the Jewish peo-
ple as People of the Book.
Appropriately enough, the mosaic

is being installed on the wall next to
the Henry and Delia Meyers Library,
which is being constructed on the
JCC's lower level.
Although the project, financed by
a DeRoy Testamentary Grant for Art
in the schools, was mostly the work
of the school's seventh-graders, most
of the more than 60 children in the
Sunday school participated in one
way or other. The themes fit into the
school's curriculum of tikkun olam
(repairing the world), said Marilyn
Wolfe, JPI educational director.
"It makes a perfect entry to the
library," she said. "I really want to
leave something wonderful at the
Jewish Center in return for all they've
given us over the years." ❑
