Our Heritage

Mr. Khaim Pinkhasik, a world-renowned artist in stained glass has crafted a unique sculpture in stained glass and wood entitled "Our Heritage".

A Star of David almost five feet tall, it depicts the life cycle of the Jewish People. Included in the work are 613 stars representing the 613 commandments of the Torah. This wonderful piece of art now stands in our upper foyer just outside the main sanctuary. Its color and beauty captivate all who see it.

Each of the 613 stars is available for inscription. One may donate a star for a special occasion or to honor or memorialize a loved one. The cost of each star dedication is $180.00. The monies raised will help in the restoration of our stained glass windows. To dedicate a star, please fill out the form below and return it to the Synagogue.
