The Tree of Life Torah Ark is a remarkable design that combines the structural and decorative components in every detail. This Aron Kodesh is constructed from solid wood with dovetail joinery and invisible brass hinges mortised into the framework. The panel doors represent the tree of life and also resemble a menorah. The rare art stained glass has been installed into the framework of the doors and adding colour and texture. The top box rests strongly within the joinery by its weight alone and can easily be lifted and transported without hardware. The bottom box can be disassembled from the legs with two simple brass bolts from the inside of the box. The design for this portable option was inspired by the descriptions of the Mishkan the Jewish people carried through the desert bearing the ten commandments. The sides of the ark, representing the holy spirit and wind associated with growth and care, and the passage across the top are hand carved and unique to this piece. Twelve handmade glass rounds will be inlayed into the carving work on the sides to represent the twelve tribes. This aron kodesh was purchased by Beth Messiah Congregation, Cottonwood, NJ.
