RHIF Funds Restoration of Tel Aviv International Synagogue
September 5, 2016
As part of its efforts to restore Israel's heritage for the benefit of its people, RHIF funded the deep cleaning and restoration services for the synagogue's Ten Commandment tablets, Torah holders, marble and chandelier. Founding Rabbi Ariel Konstantyn expressed his gratitude to RHIF:
Dear Robin Hood Israel Foundation,
On behalf of the Tel Aviv International Synagogue "Beit El", I would like to express my utmost gratitude to you and your wonderful organization for your benevolence to our synagogue. Thanks to the deep cleaning and restoration services you provided, our synagogue has begun to regain its shine and grandeur of the 1930's with gold lettered Ten Commandment tablets atop the now majestic Aron HaKodesh (the letters had turned black having been elected for over 80 years!). The Torah holders that had also turned black are now back to their original copper, the marble has been restored, the chandelier cleaned and glimmering and more.
