Our Sanctuary Isa Barnett's model

The brass artwork on the Ark was designed and made by the famous artist and former congregant, the late Isa Barnett (1924-2001).

Mr. Barnett came to the Temple board in 1992 with the photo of a model he had made (right) and the sketch below that explains the piece.

He added that the seven shins at the top represent the days of the week.
