Background of the mural:
The mural highlights the Torah’s message that each person is a world unto themselves regardless of their abilities, the color of their skin, invisible mental health conditions, socioeconomic status, or any other distinguishing factor.It depicts a Crown Heights community scene with people of all types, emphasizing the fact that it is precisely the variety that brings vibrancy and life to a community, while at our core we are all unified.
This project is part of a larger multi media campaign that will include a new song and music video by 8th Day called “We All Belong" scheduled for release early 2019.
The mural has been completed in time for the launch of a new project – ShabbaTTogether – A Global Shabbos of Disability Inclusion and Mental Health Awareness- being launched by Chabad in over 170 cities across the globe and on every continent on Parshat Terumah, February 8-9, 2019.
