Temple Sholom School is pleased and honoured to announce the creation of the Roberta Mickelson Art Education Fund, in loving memory of Temple Sholom member and artist Roberta Mickelson. This fund was created by her beloved husband Brian and their children to honour Roberta’s love for art and to support the use of Art Education in our Temple Sholom School.
The Art Education Fund will provide material support for art projects, classes and activities in the Temple Sholom School. Because of this remarkable and ongoing gift students in our schools will be able to use many of the mediums and modalities that Roberta loved in her own art to express their love of Judaism and their individual Jewish identity. The fund will provide money to bring in art specialists to work with our students and to offset the cost of art supplies and materials that are used in all of our school classes.
We are forever grateful to Brian, Sam, Max & Jaclyn for this ongoing gift to the Temple Sholom School and for the gift that Roberta continues to be for generations of students through this fund established in her blessed memory.
