The Ark


The Ark is a very ornate structure within a synagogue built to house the Torah scroll. It is named after the "Ark of the Covenant": a Biblical artifact which carried within it, amongst other things, the stone tablets on which the Law of Moses was written. It is shameful to think during the Nazi occupation of Ukraine this beautiful monument was torn out and a puppet stage was erected in its place. Praise God that redemption has come and "all things are made new"!
