The sunlit Kamenir Chapel, enveloped in wood and Jerusalem stone and accented with faceted glass windows, designed by Ruth Merritt, evoke the Seven Days of Creation. The chapel is a haven of tranquil beauty appropriate to reflection and remembrance.
Hanging on the outer walls are Quilts of Memories lovingly crafted by the members of our community and dedicated to our friends and loved ones who were lost in the Holocaust.
“Creation; The First Seven Days” faceted glass windows
The windows depict each day of creation, represented with Hebrew letters, colors and background images. The colors of the letters, red through purple, reflect the spectrum of the rainbow, the symbol of hope in the biblical story of the flood.
The back wall of the Kamenir Chapel is accented by a series of stunning faceted stained-glass windows designed by Ruth Merritt.
