Stained Glass Windows

Our shul is surrounded by many beautiful stained glass windows.  They were conceived by Rabbi Arnold Feldman, designed by an artist and dedicated by many  generous congregants. Each tells a story about our history or our values.

Congregations of Shaare Shamayim



One of the two stained glass windows in our Sanctuary in the Karff.  The menorah design is created from two shin’s symbolizing Shaare Shamayim. 


Each of the windows has four panels  with one representing each of the seasons.
