Mosaic of Our Community

The mosaic is a metaphor for the development and growth of Jewish Family Services of Washtenaw County, where many different services, events, experiences and partnerships combine to create the exquisite, one-of a kind masterpiece we call JFS.

Original Mosaic designed by Gail Rosenbloom Kaplan & Dani Katsir. Upon completion, the 4ft finished mosaic will be installed in the JFS lobby
