What Message Will Your Parochet Convey?
“I firmly believe that a parochet is so much more than embroidery threads and velvet. It’s meant to create an ambience, a welcoming atmosphere in the shul. It should convey your congregation’s unique message and value system, and attract newcomers. It is essentially the synagogue’s focal point.”
-Chana Gamliel, parochet artist
Biala of Stamford Hill

Feinstone Yeshiva of the South- Memphis, TN
A Yeshiva’s parochet transmits a clear message to the bachurim: “Torah learning is thrilling! Shtaygen is the joy of our lives!” The deep message conveyed by this parochet’s deep Jewish imagery conveys Rabbi Shlomo Wolbe’s teachings about dual processes in a child’s development. The parochet is replete with inferences to these two processes- the organic and the man-made.
