Tehillah Yisrael Synagogue

This remarkable synagogue project was installed in May 2014 in Toronto. The entire synagogue, including the aron kodesh, bimah, amud, walls, mechitza/door openings, and library were designed, produced, and installed by Gabriel Bass, Tal Leibman, and other assistants.

Custom Synagogue Interior Design and Production

The entire fronts, doors, and framing were all made from solid wood, African Walnut with dark finish, integrating a traditional design with contemporary feel. Gabriel carved the entire aron kodesh by hand in traditional recessed relief, the flow of the natural floral patterns emanating from the crown above. The four spaces between the men’s and women’s section doors were designed to be used as both a mechitza and room dividers. Women can see into the sanctuary through a one-way mirror and the top hanging doors can be left open to allow sound to travel in. The top can be closed completely to section off the two rooms when used separately and the doors can be opened completely for larger gatherings. Eight matching synagogue bookshelves make up the library, framed in the same pattern as the aron kodesh and mechitza openings.
