Types of Judaic Stained Glass

From the day that Moses was commanded to build a tabernacle in the desert, temple art and architecture have developed along biblical lines. Synagogue stained glass can feature a wide range of symbols and emblems that are characteristically Jewish. The menorah, the lamp, the interlacing triangles, the Lion of Judah, and flower and fruit forms are all allowable in most Orthodox synagogues. Stained Glass Inc. panels can serve as temple windows, door inserts, partitions, and feature walls. Jewish stained glass windows can have a variety of styles and subjects. A few possible themes for synagogue windows and partitions include the following:

  • Magen David Windows: Also referred to as the Star of David, the six-pointed star is used in stained glass and other Jewish art. The Star of David, created by two interlaced triangles, is based on the symbol from David’s shield.
  • Menorah Stained Glass: The origin of the menorah was the seven-branched candelabrum which was carried by the Israelites and used in the sanctuary as they journeyed through the Sinai desert. In art, the menorah was used to illuminate manuscripts. It began to appear in stained glass images during the Middle Ages.
  • Tree of Life: This is the Hebrew Etz Hayyim (Tree of Life). It represents the original tree in the Garden of Eden and is also significant because of the traditional reference to the Torah as the “Tree of Life.”
  • Hebrew inscriptions in stained glass: Hebrew script can be an art form in its own right. It can be featured in stained glass art either alone or in combination with a decorative element. The Hebrew inscriptions in stained glass serve both to embellish the synagogue as well as to instruct the congregation. The inscriptions used in synagogue stained glass artworks are most often biblical verses suitable for creating a mood for prayer. These include Shalom (Peace), as well as “How lovely are Thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts” (Psalms 84:2), “Know before whom you stand” (Berachot 28b), “0 give thanks unto the Lord, call upon His name” (Psalms 105:1), “O Lord, hear my prayer” (Psalms 102:2), and other inspirational quotations.
