Carved Mechitza with Metal Design

This mechitzah is built completely from solid wood with metal decorative element for the top section divider.  Within the metalwork are inlaid glass that sparkle the light.  The commissioned mechitzas were custom ordered by Bet Israel in New Orleans, their original building having been destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.  The hand craftsmanship in these protable mechitzas are remarkable.  Four panels of six feet long were built for this project.  Two of the panels had shelves for siddurim (prayer books) and tallit (prayer shall) racks built into the back.

Customize Your Mechitzah

A well designed mechitza will give a good view and feeling of access for the women. While at the same time, the mechitza must conform to some level of modesty from the men’s side, which will vary from congregation to congregation. Bass Synagogue Furniture builds custom mechitzas to suit the needs, style, and budget of our clients. Each project is designed in detailed renderings according to the specifications of our clients before it is produced. Our mechitza designs include a base of woodwork to either three feet, sitting, or four feet, standing and then a top semi-transparent material. We have found the most popular choices to be clear glass, one-way mirror, graphic printing, curtains, and laser cut wood, and sandblasted glass. We can also provide woodwork, carving, metalwork, stained glass, and pretty much whatever you can think of.
