Torah Mantles
On the occasion of a Bar or Bat Mitzvah the Rabbi passes the Torah into the hands of the eldest family member who passes it to the next oldest on to the youngest child in the family. This is the inspiration for the design on the center Torah in the arc, a calligraphic logo depicting “L Dor V ‘Dor,” which means “From Generation to Generation,” a central and universal precept of Judaism.

Created by Karen as stencil designs, and silkscreened onto velvet by fabric designer
Judy Topkis, Completed in 2010.
