Ark for a beit midrash

Arks 1A-Brown Hillel

Ark for the Beit Midrash (room for study) at Brown Univ. Hillel, honoring the sources of Jewish learning. The central portion where the Torahs are stored is a graphic depiction of the open pages of the Talmud, which is in turn supported by the five books of the Torah and the six orders of the Mishnah, the pillars of Jewish knowledge on which the Talmud is based.
