Join us for the 2022 BLINK Parade!
The Jewish community will be proudly and brightly walking the streets during this exciting parade. We have been working with a local Jewish artist to help make our costume vision come to life.
We are excited to collaborate with local artist and Jewish community member, Cindy Loon, to create our artistic vision for Jewish community collective participation. The story we are telling is about the Jewish value of Tikkun Olam, repairing the world; “…God exhaled some of God’s light into the world. But this light was too strong, too bright, too much for the vessels that were meant to hold it, so they shattered. And the world was filled with tiny sparks of God’s light…” (Diamant, Anita, Living A Jewish Life, pg. 69). Each individual will represent a tiny spark of this light, and as a whole, we will showcase that we are working towards completing God’s work of Tikkun Olam, repairing the world, by bringing the light together.
