This Aron Kodesh was commissioned for the opening of the first ever Synagogue in Kibboutz Sde Boker in the Negev Desert, Israel. Sde Boker is where Israel’s first prime minister, David Ben Gurion lived and is buried. This kibboutz is infused with Ben Gurion’s vision for settling the desert and bringing it to bloom. The spiritual reawakening that is taking place there among some of its members adds an extra dimension to the thriving of life in the desert. The inscription carved into the crown cornice is from Psalms: “…my soul thirsteth for Thee…” You may choose an alternative inscription.
