The Kiriyat Ya’arim Synagogue in Israel, located in Telz Stone near Jerusalem, was custom designed and produced at Bass Synagogue Furniture. This large synagogue project included a hand carved aron kodesh with twisted columns, bimah, podiums, and about 50 square meters of library book cases. The project was completed before Pesach 2016. All the woodwork is hand carved at the Bass Synagogue Furniture studios within twenty kilometers of the work site.
Bass Synagogue Furniture specializes in custom design and construction of synagogue interiors throughout the world. This classic style aron kodesh features hand carved solid wood columns, recess carved plaques. The height above the ark is divided into two floors divided by hand made molding in the same wood as the carvings. To the right and left of the eastern wall of the synagogue stand two podiums built for the rabbi and chazzan. The center crown demonstrates depth in hand carving and hanging wood carved features lit from behind with LED lighting. The rabbi’s lectern has a pull out table to drop for sitting position. The bimah features pre-purchased carving and top that opens above. The book shelves are adorned with the the same hand made hardwood molding used above the torah ark and curved top.
