The Jewish Federation Connecting with Community welcomes Debra Tyler, farmer, artist, and earth justice advocate, celebrating the Spring Equinox with us.
On display will be her Earth Scroll, a three year spiritual journey in the making; a 54 foot illustration of global unity. This multi-faith moveable mural is a stunning reminder of our oneness with the world. It chronicles the solar seasons, rising and falling tides in accordance with the lunar phases, signs of the zodiac, and phenomenology of the natural world. Various spiritual belief systems are represented in Hebrew, Greek, Arabic, and Chinese calligraphy. Together, we will take a close-up look at what's happening in the natural world and ways in which different faith scriptures correspond to one another in this season.
Debra is the founding Director of Motherhouse; Nurturing Self, Family, Community and our Mother Earth.
