Ner Tamid – Eternal Lights

Ner Tamid for your Synagogue - Custom Carving is one of the only studios in the world with years of experience working on the appropriate convergence of wood and glass in artist design. The Ner Tamid is our opportunity to show this off. Already built or made to order, our Eternal Light fill the prayer space with incredible energy. They can be ordered ready to mount above your Aron Hakodesh or hanging from the ceiling. Custom Carving has developed many of its own unique techniques for forming glass into wooden structures according to structural and aesthetic considerations.
