Stained Glass in Cedar Sinai Synagogue Dazzles the Senses

The theme is from Egypt till the temple. The bottom has a pyramid and the burning bush, the beginning of the Jews as a people.
They leave Egypt through the Red sea and camp at the foot of Sinai (see the tents). Next is the Matan Torah and the conquest of the Land, symbolised by the walls of Jericho exploding and the shofarot.
Finally we have the Temple. The Verse is from Isaiah 56:7.
The most exciting part of the process of stained glass includes painting with ground glass on the glass canvas. I try to do this painting in one sitting, the effect is more spontaneous and alive rather than trying to be in control.
I envision a real, unique art form that is Jewish in its inception—I don't wish to make art that is Jewish, but Jewish art, that is Jewish in its idea, subject, feeling and method.
