Here in Estonia, our group is working together with members of the Estonian Jewish community to paint a beautiful mural at the Tallinn JCC. Once finished, this room will serve as play area and meeting place for families, children and other community members. Additionally, our group is creating Jewish-themed posters and decorations to be used both at the JCC and the local Jewish kindergarten.

After getting a lesson on which colors to use and where, we put on smocks and got prepared to add color and life to the kids' play area.
