Flame Rekindled


As we begin to reopen we look forward to pulling open a welcoming and refurbished set of doors. The main entrance to our synagogue, built in 1984, is a commissioned work of art titled “Seven Point Flame,” by the renowned Big Sur artist, Edmund Kara. For more information about this beautiful part of our synagogue please see the article in the May Shofar.
