Built-In Aron Kodesh and Synagogue Furniture with Torah Safe
The Aron Kodesh was custom designed to suit the preexisting safe which holds the torahs. The pasuk across the top and menorah above the lectern on the right was carved by hand by artist Gabriel Bass and painted with gold. The menorah is lit from the back of the ark with LED lights and hand blown glass inlays and a switch was wired to the right side of the ark to turn the lights on and off. The columns, frames, and molding is all built from solid wood, African Walnut. The details, including the routed columns and molding, were all produced at the Bass Synagogue Furniture studios in Israel by Jewish craftsmen. The amud tefillah is built in a traditional style with the addition of a pull out table that rests strong at an angle, perfect for study and prayer from the sitting position. The table pulls out easily and was built with no additional hardware. The top of the torah reading table and podiums opens forward on brass plated piano hinges for additional storage within the boxes. BSF has meanwhile used the preexisting parochet in front of the safe. All the work was custom designed and produced for Young Israel of Greater Miami.
