JF&CS Mosaic by JF&CS Boston

This mosaic was created for Jewish Family & Children’s Service by the New England Mosaic Society to mark the expansion of the Family Table space. The four strands of the braid represent four areas of work at JF&CS (basic needs, early relationships, older adults and people with disabilities), and the way that services are integrated to support the varied needs of individuals and families. Each section of the mosaic was designed and made by a different NEMS member to symbolize one aspect of the work.

Every piece of the mosaic is framed by colored tiles. These tiles are color coded to different areas of our work:

Yellow: older adults
Blue: people with disabilities
White: basic needs
Green: early relationships
