450 sqm, completed 1998, Hodayot youth village, for the youth village.
Two separate foci at the center of the space of the synagogue and the tension between them represents the cultural drama occurring within. The Ark represents the divine intelligence, and the Bima stage represents the world that is straining to be one with that intelligence. By taking the Ark out of the space of the synagogue and into a separate nich that is enclosed by heavy stone gates, we emphasized this drama. Use of identical materials and similar design tie the Ark and the Buma to each other.
