Louis & Fay Woll Memorial Bible Garden

Completed: 2010 Location: West Bloomfield, MI Project Type: Memorial Garden

Bible Gardens usually contain plants mentioned in the Bible or use plants to recreate themes from the Bible. The Louis and Fay Woll Memorial Bible Garden does both and serves many purposes. It is meant to serve as a place of inner reflection, as a place of education, as a place for social and community gatherings, as a place to celebrate special things in our lives, and as a place to understand and appreciate the beauty and continuity of nature and its connection to the Jewish people and to the Divine.*

The path guides you through the Garden of Eden, passed the tent of Abraham and Sarah, through the parting of the red sea, up the steps to Mount Sinai, reaching the Western wall.
