Give Your Marble New Life

Both new and older marble needs
professional care to look its best;

are six trees, symbolic of the
six million Holocaust victims.
From the garden, visitors
have a view of the Holocaust
museum, with an unusual
design of glass and fused
barbed wire. Leading to the
exit are two ramps, one
leading left; the other leading
right.
The garden and museum
were both designed by Pro-
vidence architect Ira Rakan-
tansky, who worked with a
committee of survivors. "We
wanted a living memorial,
something to look to the
future," explains Vivian
Weisman, assistant executive
director of the JCC, leading
the way through a garden full
of floral displays and trees in
bloom.
Holocaust gardens like this
are of powerful symbolic
significance. Quite another
type of garden is the
sculpture garden, designed
purely for beauty and to set
off works of art. It, too, pro-
vides pleasure for Jewish
travelers in new cities.

Giant redwoods and palm
trees line the garden outside
of the Judah L. Magnes
Museum in Berkeley, Calif.
This garden serves in part as
a winding pathway to the
museum itself, housed in a
distinctive mansion. It is the
third largest Jewish museum
in the United States and a
repository of Jewish art and
culture in the Bay Area.
But the garden outside the
museum is impressive in its
own right.
Laid out by John McLaren,
landscape architect for the ac-
claimed Golden Gate Park in
San Francisco, the sculpture
garden is filled with lush
plants and flowers. Though
sunny Berkeley is only twen-
ty minutes by train from San
Francisco, its climate is more
balmy and southern.

Ripe with tropical plants,
the garden is also studded
with pieces of Jewish
sculpture. There's an unusual
and abstract sculpture with a
Holocaust theme under one
tree. In a prominent place on
the grass is Nathan Hahn's
Shofar, a curved stone shofar
set amid tropical flowers, with
tall trees beyond.
In quite another climate, in
the heart of western Penn-
sylvania, is one of the
foremost biblical gardens in
the United States. Situated in
Pittsburgh, a city of hills and
rivers, is the Biblical
Botanical Garden.
It is located outside historic
Temple Rodef Shalom, a
synagogue listed on the Na-
tional Register of Historic
Places. Landscaped to resem-
ble the shape of Israel, this
