The Holy One, Blessed is He is Light. The exquisite beauty, color, and light, liturgical stained glass art indwell within the Temple, remind us of the two greatest commandments: Shema O' Yisrael: Adonai Elohenu Adonai Ehad. We must love Adonai, our Lord with all our heart, with all our mind, with all our power, and with all our being. The second as the first; Love your neighbor as much as you love yourself. I am the Lord.....

The Mishna in Temple Tifereth Israel - Columbus Ohio

In style, the six architectural stained glass windows in Temple Tifereth Israel synagogue exist as independent works of art, while interrelating with one another to create one complete, and unified environmental composition, existing in harmony with the architecture.

Although collectively these stained glass windows embody one comprehensive idea, they each individually symbolize one of the six orders of the Mishna, (a principal rabbinic code edited about 200 C.E.) The purely abstract compositional theme of the lead and glass is interwoven with symbolic content in the form of paint, which has been applied directly on the glass and fired into its surface. The special character of the line work is thus achieved by interlacing lead and paint. The lead line is a pure design element. The paint delineates symbolism. The total effect is that of a labyrinth. The symbolism was intentionally rendered subtly. In this way, the symbolic imagery was merged with the abstract. Therefore, understanding the hidden meaning contained within each of these stained glass windows demands a length of time devoted to study, both of the windows and their source of inspiration. These works are evocative of Jewish life and culture; historical, social, intellectual, intuitional, aesthetic and spiritual.
