Welcome to our tour. We are particularly proud of our facility and we would enjoy showing
it to you.
The stained glass window was designed and installed by Wilmark Studios, Inc in New York. It
represents a portrayal of the relationship between man and God, a soaring visual
interpretation of the Mourner's Kaddish. The stained glass encloses a separate
space with its own roof and distinctive form. The departed reposes here during
the service. The central element of the window is a tree symbolizing the Tree
of Life and the Torah. The window depicts the passage of time on two levels,
the four seasons and the life cycle.
The Mourner's Kaddish is an affirmation of faith as depicted in the passage at the
bottom of the window which is also the Dorfman logo "The Soul of Man is the
Lamp of the Lord".
The lower left represents spring, with the first growth in the fields and protective
parent doves feeding their babies. Summer is shown with full vibrant greens and
bright light in the top left. The cycle continues on the lower right with swirling
winds and the red, burgundy and rust tones of autumn. The crystal cool tones on the
top right speak of winter and a completion of a year, returning to the rebirth of
spring and an eternal continuation. Rays of light radiate from the top left
illuminating the entire scene, representing the divinity within each life that continues forever.
Rich oils, lithographs, and other original works of art adorn the walls, depicting the
Jewish heritage and promoting serenity and comfort.
