The Stained Glass Windows

Original Designs and Creations by Lynda Wisecup with assistance from craftspersons from within Congregation Shir Ha-Ma’alot

Congregation Shir Ha-Ma’alot is unique in having had the only known stained glass studio where congregants built a mural of windows. Stained glass artist Lynda Wisecup conceived the project and designed the windows.

In March of 1996 the first of seven windows—Shabbat—was installed in our synagogue. The seventh and final window—Life Cycles II—was installed in April 2010. Each window is over five feet square and contains thousands of individually cut and fit pieces of glass.

The first three windows share a common thread of the rainbow, shape of light, and the wimple. The wimple is the primary element that takes us through the life cycles.
