At Rockwern Academy, we have two sacred spaces.
Each week, the students gather in the beautiful Boymel Synagogue to pray, learn and read Torah. Seven stained-glass windows depict the seven days of creation; student-made ceramic butterflies on the walls serve as a reminder of the poem, “I Never Saw A Butterfly.” Hand-embroidered jackets cover the Torahs that are taken out on Monday or Thursday when the students chant from the weekly portion.
The Wise Chapel is a smaller, more intimate space, featuring wonderful stained-glass Aron Kodesh. Classes use the chapel when celebrating a special occasion or event—its quiet beauty creates a spirit of holiness.
