Tree of Life

A celestial ark curtain that is the centerpiece of the prayer hall.

The ark curtain comprises mainly hand-dyed cottons, pieced in soft

curving lines to create the color shifting sky background, tree trunk and water sources.

 

Hand appliqued and embellished flowers and leaves add to the magnificent detail.

 

Commissioned for the Samueli Center for Reform Judaism in Ra’anana.

 

Design based on original artwork by Naomi Cohen-Ziv.
