In most cases, the aronot kodesh I create are large and dominant synagogue furniture pieces. This small ark was commissioned by a private collector in Toronto to house a unique Torah scroll. The theme of the piece is the Tree of Life. Each leaf was created by sculpting the form and then cutting out a hollow which was then filled by attaching a plate of hammered solid silver. Silver work executed by Bier Judaica Inc. of Jerusalem, Israel.
