Mosaic unveiled at Kingston shul

October 1, 2009

A giant mosaic was unveiled at Kingston Liberal Synagogue, the product of six months work by congregants.

Installed on a wall at the entrance to the shul’s new extension, the mosaic was conceived by KLS member Sandra Webber. The 120 KLS members across the age spectrum cut and glued the tiny tiles which make up the work. It features biblical symbols such as the dove of peace — designed by 14-year-old Liane Aviram — and a tree of life comprising 613 mirrored leaves.

The unveiling was performed by the Mayor of Elmbridge, Councillor James Vickers, and other guests included local MP Edward Davey.

Shul president Judy Thwaites said the artwork was “rich in symbolic meaning”.
