The Goldberg Sanctuary

 

The Goldberg Sanctuary seats 750 for worship.  The Aron Hakodesh (Sacred Ark) contains the Torah scrolls.  The Aron Hakodesh is constructed of marble and wood and is adorned with a large metal sculpture of the Ten Commandments.  Sky lights on the west wall light the ark with rays of sun, weather permitting. The Ner Tamid (Eternal Light) which burns  continually is at the base of the sculpture hanging above the ark. The Eternal Light symbolizes the faith of the Jewish people and  their commitment to the idea that the Torah will continue to be their guiding light. The two candelabra on either side of the ark in our the Goldberg Sanctuary are abstract interpretations of a blooming almond tree. These candelabra, along with the 10 commandments sculpture, were designed by the distinguished local artist Dorothy Riester.
