This aron kodesh was commissioned by the Ritz Carlton hotel in Herziliya Pitouach, Israel. This ark is intended to serve the smaller synagogue for daily worship, while the “Scenes of Jerusalem Ark” he made is used in the larger hall for special occasions. This aron kodesh, being located in a rather confined space, needed to be compact, bright and cheerful. By implementing some of his trade mark positive/negative space design and using mainly a light-toned maple, kimchi was able to keep this synagogue furniture piece both practical and light.
