Parokhet (Ark Curtain)
The parokhet, which is much larger than our
other pieces of work, is the curtain that covers the front of the
Ark that holds the Torah scrolls. During the High Holidays, and
until the conclusion of the holiday of Simchat Torah, we
use a special parokhet that uses different colors and a special
design that recalls the High Holidays.

The final finishing details for
custom-made parokhet depend on how a particular Ark is built.
We recommend having someone familiar with the location add the final
finishing details, but if this is not possible, we will need photographs
and detailed descriptions of the hanging arrangement.
