Arks for Synagogues

Styles for the Aron Kodesh range from traditional European designs, such as the synagogue ark doors at the Plainview Jewish Center, to the bold contemporary, award-winning ark at Oheb Shalom.  Often a Tree of Life representing Torah is used as the design element.  Other Judaic themes may include the Ten Commandments, a burning bush, Hebrew quote, or a design of your choosing.  We use a combination of satin-finished brass, bronze, brass-coated copper, or pure copper to hammer relief designs into the configuration of the ark doors.  In addition, we can enhance the design by providing melted or traditional stained glass accents.
