Installed: September, 2006

Commissioned to create a new Ark Interior, Curtain and Reading Table cover in a fabric collage technique for the Chapel at Kehillath Israel Temple, Brookline, MA. The design is based on the Tree of Life motif, with the Torah Scrolls in the branches of the tree of life, the curtains are covered with branches and leaves tinted with the colors of the four seasons. The design extends to the reading table, with branches and leaves twining up the four corners of the table. The setting is a visual invitation to enter the sacred space created by the Tree of Life which contains the Torah Scrolls. As one approaches the Ark from the reading table, and parts the 'branches' on the curtains one is metaphorically in the Tree of Life symbolized by the Torah.
