the law that guides our faith. Its position and prominence in the window is reminiscent of the great importance it has in the daily lives of all observant Jews. Behind the Torah stands the Western Wall, a cornerstone of the Jewish faith and a symbol of its endurance.

The Jewish imagery is intertwined with symbolism of personal significance to Avrum and Emmy. The tree of life represents the Green family name, and the white flowers at the top is for Emmy’s family name, Weiss. The Hebrew letters in the window border are the first initials of close family members.
