Recommendation about Sara Konforty's artwork for the Synagogues 22.11.2009
 
"And I have filled him… in wisdom and in understanding and in knowledge… to devise skilful works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass"
 
To Mrs. Sara Konforty,
Founder and manager of the Sara Konforty studio
 
I would like to convey my great admiration and joy at seeing your special and magnificent creations that uplift, beautify and enrich the house of Lord, beginning with the wonderful and unique design of the Ark of the Torah (Aron Kodesh), the cantor's dais (Teivat Chazzan) and the stained glass windows, which obviously required long hours of thought and meticulous attention to detail, in order to achieve the heartwarming and soul expanding end product.
 
The memorial plaques, the cover of the Torah scroll (Parochet) and artistic walls that you created, alongside the ceramic tiles and special signs, are a refreshing and captivating sight, true works of art, that are worthy of glorifying and praising any and all institutions that hold themselves in high esteem.
 
Anyone who visits your gallery gazes with yearning eyes and a full heart at the pure beauty and hard work, and at the thought that goes into every possible detail.
 
After seeing these creations, what more can I say? It instills joy to the heart to see such marvelous works of art, to discover that there are such amazing people, and to take pleasure in the fact that there are such talented people.
I wish you great success in any path you choose to take, great riches, health, spirituality and expansion of the mind, amen.
 
 I am confident that anyone who fills his/her home with your creations, in all of which you have infused your heart and soul, will know joy and happiness.
God willing, when the Third Temple is soon built, I am certain that your admirable and alluring creations will adorn the place that we have dreamed of and longed for, for so many years. Amen.
 
With admiration and respect,
Rabbi Josef Weismann

A recommendation, regarding the artistic work of the artist Sara Konfortyfromsynagogueof Moroccan Jews 28.3.2010
 
A recommendation from a synagogue of Moroccan Jews, from the Schemesh Oumagen synagogue, in Jerusalem, regarding the artistic work of the artist Sara Konforty:  the design and creation of an Ark of the Torah (Aron HaKodesh), a stained glass window, design of the synagogue wall, a cover for the Ark (Parochet) of the synagogue and design of a Moroccan style cantor's dais (Teivat Chazzan).
 
I whole heartedly recommend Sara Konforty's work.
Her main attributes are: Dedication, responsibility, attention to details, a rare talent that enables her to match different motifs to the general style and her insistence to achieve a perfect product, both in terms of design and in the technical sense.
Regards,
Patrick Bitton

Parochet, Paroches, Parokhet, Sara Konforty designs and creates unique-handmade Parochet in a synagogue, which is usually on the front of the Aron Kodesh. The Parochet covers usually the Sifrei Torah and covers the holly Ark. In many synagogues there is a custom to change the Parochet, Paroches, Parokhet each holy days, on Shabbat (usually to a white Parochet. Here you can see white cover curtains in a very unique handmade work, in a modern design, a holiday design,  a classic design, with motives as Jerusalem, with the menorah design, The Keter TORAH, All the Parochet, Paroches, Parokhet are special and original, designed specially to the client demands.

“Always without formulating the concept, I had based my sense of being in the world partly on an unreasoned conviction that certain areas  of the earth’s surface contained more magic than others”.- Paul Bowles. My work- my designing of the interiors of the Moroccan synagogue – the Aron Hakodesh, the rose window-rosette, the other special windows of the synagogue- all those creations were born out of an instinctive love and admiration to the cultural and traditional  Jewish Moroccan. The notion of “Orientalism”, of Islamic culture filtered through the perceptions of the west had captivated me many years ago and influenced my art during all the last 20 years. In my work I tried to combine past and present and to express the mystical, the sense and a little bite of the soul of Morocco.

 I was influenced from the Islamic Architecture in Morocco, from the walls covered with mosaic tiles (zelliges), and the motifs which are always geometrical and abstract. Since it is not allowed to paint in the synagogue motifs of figures or animals - it was very convenient to express my art and to be connected with the artistic traditional Moroccan.

During the last weeks of designing, painting and working for the new synagogue – mainly for the Jewish Morocco, I spend many nights of learning about the tradition, ways and environments of Morocco, Synagogues, colors, designing, Jews were clearly part of the Roman cities that developed in the first century. Many of them moved into Morocco by migrating westward along the Mediterranean coast from the large Jewish center in Carthage (Tunisia). Traces of Jewish life can be found in Volubilis, the large excavated city near Meknes. Volubilis was the most Western settlement of the Roman Empire.  The Jews of Morocco tend to respect tradition but are not religiously observant. The community life is focused around the synagogues and social clubs. The Jews speak with nostalgia and longing of the wondrous past of the community, and continue to observe the rituals of saint worship.

The Bimah, Bamah , the Teiva, Tevah 

 It is an elevated platform or seat in the middle of the synagogue, for reading the lessons and from which the Torah is read each Sabbath. According to the Spanish and the Moroccan ritual the prayers are also read from it in the synagogues. In other European countries the Bema is known as the speaker's tribune. Usually the place of the Teiva is in the middle of the synagogue. Lately it is been moved forward close up to the Ark. The Bimah is called also as the Reading desk in some of the Synagogues of Europe. Architecturally: The Bama is usually open in two sides and are approached by steps, at least three, with lamps in the corners. Usually in most of the synagogues wood is the material used. Marble and bronze are used also but less. The desk is covered with rich drapery. I am usually painting the desk cover with rich ornaments as the Parochet. In the orthodox and in  the older synagogues the position of the Bamah is in the Center of the synagogue or in the back near the entrance. The space between the Bima and the Ark is left open and entirely free of seats.

Sara Konforty's Studio is designing and producing also according to the Sephardim, the Morocco's ritual, the ashkenazi: bima cover, ark cover curtains, Torah mantles for torah scrolls, chuppas, bris pillows Synagogue, Passover cover, Yarmulka in different styles: classic design, modern design, holiday design and a very special authentic-eastern design, according to the customer's request.
