Door panels for Ark

Congregation Beth Israel, Bangor, ME

2015

The four Ark panels include the Hebrew lettering for “Let there be light”, the first commandment of Creation, which ties in with the Eternal Light above the Ark. The letters are glowing against rich shades of blue and purple.

I’ve included two plants that are ancient Jewish symbols, the grapevine and a branch from a pomegranate tree.

The panels are approximately 18” x 18” x ½”. The design and colors had to be compatible with the stained glass already in the Sanctuary.
