Evening Presentation—Building Community: Sacred and Secular

December 15, 2014 Boston

Get creative and make a change! Join us at the Vilna Shul for an evening discussion, reception, and book signing from local authors Jay and David Ball.

Using examples from their recent work, Ark Builders of Temple Israel, co-authors David and Jay Ball will discuss how volunteers in small groups succeed and falter and how working together on tangible projects helps to knit the social fabric of a community.

This multimedia presentation includes progressive construction drawings and photographs of wood pieces built over the past 29 years, to show how project ideas are conceived, refined, and translated into furniture. The talk provides insight into how the Ark Builders have functioned and will provide inspiration to those who wish to give back to their community through their creativity and the work of their hands.

This event is free and open to everyone. RSVPs are appreciated and $5 validated parking is available near the Shul. We are also easily accessed by public transportation (5 minutes from the Red Line Charles/MGH and a slightly longer walk from the Orange and Green Lines at Downtown Crossing and Park Street.) For directions please visit our website.
