The Ark is the holiest part of the synagogue, a shrine of knowledge, history, and light. In the Ark are our Holy Torah Scrolls. In the design of the Ark we suspended into the mysterious dark all the tangible parts of the structure, leaving the light to work its’ magic: from protecting the resting torahs, to enveloping the rising congregation when the Ark is open and filling the synagogue with the light of the menorah and the twelve tribes of Israel.
Our Ark was created by local artists Simon Kogan and Ariel Goldberger. Simon’s work may be found at http://www.simonkogan.com/pages/Start.html.
