haftarah ark

the story

This marks my first experience designing and building a 'religious' piece. I was approached, by way of a designer friend, by individuals representing a local synogogue, inquiring about the possibility of creating a special cabinet for them. It would be made for the express purpose of housing a haftarah scroll in a cabinet, or ark. It would need to be on display, accessible and secure. It would also stand alongside the sanctuary's main ark which housed the 5 scrolls of the Torah. (As I learned, a haftarah is not a 'half-torah' but rather a separate compilation of selections from the book of 'Prophets' often read publicly as part of the Jewish service.)
