Calling Organizations for Under One Roof 2023 Artwork

The Gordon Jewish Community Center welcomes organizations to participate in the seventh annual Under One Roof art exhibit in celebration of Sukkot. Under One Roof brings together 30+ local organizations in Nashville to create artwork around a chosen theme to be displayed in our sukkah during the holiday of Sukkot. The exhibit will run from October 1-8 with a reception on Thursday, October 5 from 6-9PM.


The theme for this year’s Under One Roof is “Honor Humanity, K’vod Ha’Briot.” To honor humanity is an intrinsic value in Judaism which emphasizes the inherent dignity and worth of every individual. It is also a value that transcends cultural, religious, and societal boundaries. We need to be mindful of our behavior and treat all human beings with respect, empathy, and fairness. When we acknowledge this, we respect our innate differences and see what every human being has to offer in this world. By practicing the value of honoring humanity, we are pursuing justice, equality, and working towards a harmonious and inclusive society.


The Gordon JCC provides participating organizations with a large canvas to share their visual interpretation of the theme. Perhaps there will be collage adhered to the canvas, or a tapestry of colors painted across the blank space. The organizations are able to visually interpret what Honor Humanity: K’vod Ha’Briot means to them.
