Shomrei Torah's sanctuary is the jewel in our crown. The bima was designed and built by local artist Jeffrey Packard in 1987. The Holocaust Torah has a history that is printed on the wall nearby in English and Hebrew. The Holocaust Torah is in a special memorial ark made of six strips of metal to represent the 6 million Jews who died in the Shoah. It is made to look like barbed wire and its center was made to look like flames. There is history on the Aron Hakodesh, the Parokhet and mantels, the Ner Tamid and the stained glass windows. Learn more about the design of the sanctuary.
