Arks

An ark acts as both container and protector of the Torah scroll inside. When the ark is open and its light is on, any room that houses it becomes a synagogue. An ark can be as simple and humble, or as ornate and celebratory as the congregation requires. Here the olive tree motif on the exterior, hints at the rich and precious tree of life that lives inside.
