Next time you enter our sanctuary, be sure to check out the beautiful and welcoming new inscription, Hinei Mah Tov, or 'How good and pleasant when we dwell together in peace' (Psalm 133:1). The inscription was designed and painted by Tamara Stoneburner, a noted calligraphy artist, who donated much time over several months to get the art work and calligraphy just right. Some other aspects that you may be interested in: You will see the dove with olive branch on the left, but did you know that the flora depicted on the right are the rose of Sharon and anemone, the Israeli state flowers? Both of these are painted on stripes which if you look closely, represent the talit stripes. If you look closely behind the dove you may also notice the Kabbalistic shekinah symbols, in this case used to represent the dove of peace. Check it out below, or better yet, next time you visit!
