"Building Community: Sacred and Secular"

Ark Builders Breakfast Presentation at Temple Israel in Natick, MA (12/7/14)

Using examples from the Ark Builders of Temple Israel, co-authors David and Jay Ball discuss how volunteers in small groups succeed and falter and how working together on tangible projects helps to knit the social fabric of a community. This multimedia presentation includes progressive construction drawings and photographs of wood pieces built over the past 29 years, to show how project ideas are conceived, refined, and translated into furniture. The talk provides insight into how the Ark Builders have functioned and will provide inspiration to those who wish to give back to their community through their creativity and the work of their hands.
