The Significance of the Bimah and Choosing Your Bimah Furniture
The word bimah is Hebrew for “platform.” The term refers both to the platform in the synagogue and to the reading table from which the Torah is read. Interestingly, the location of the bimah is typically situated so that the reader faces toward the front of the sanctuary. However, its relation to the Torah ark may be the most significant consideration and varies based on different traditions.
For instance, modern Conservative and Reform congregations have moved the bimah to the front of the congregation immediately before the ark. The Sephardi tradition often places the bimah and ark at opposite ends of the room with the congregation seated between.
No matter your tradition, your bimah furniture should express a lot about your unique congregation and be functional, beautiful, and inspiring. At New Holland Church Furniture, our capabilities in building bimah furnishings, as well as synagogue seating in a range of styles and configurations, are unmatched.
