Stained Glass Windows

Our beautiful Ascalon stained-glass windows were installed in 2004 and make our building seem even more like a colorful Jewish home than before. On a sunny morning, a spectrum of colors streams into the sanctuary from above, reminding us of the rich history they portray. And the windows above our main entrance symbolize what we value most -- Jewish Community and Jewish Worship -- even as you enter.

Dedicate a Window

To help support our community, members can dedicate a window and have your name(s) added to the tasteful dedicatory wall display in the synagogue lobby (see larger photo.)

Dedicatory display for stained-glass windows

These beautiful windows may be dedicated by an individual or a family or group of friends. The 27 windowpanes for the sanctuary are available for dedication for $18,000 each and one of the larger windows above our main entrance doors is available for dedication for $36,000.

To find out which windows are still available and discuss a payment plan, please contact Melissa Heifetz, Executive Director. (Please note that due to space limitations on the dedicatory wall display, limits may be placed on the amount of text beneath the image of your window.)
