How to Measure your Paroches

Measuring from existing Paroches
For the length, measure from the top of the rings to the bottom tip of the paroches (or fringes, if any).
For the width, measure from left to right of paroches.

Measuring for a new Aron Kodesh
For the length, measure from the top to the bottom of the opening area of the Aron Kodesh (ark), or the length you prefer. Also, advise if there is any extra hidden area on top (for the rod).
For the width, measure from left to right of opening area, or the width you prefer. We usually add 2-3 inches to the sides to allow waviness of the paroches curtain.

Paroches - Ark Curtain
A paroches, or Torah ark cover, is the cloth that covers the doors of the Aron Kodesh (Ark) containing the Holly Torah scrolls in a synagogue. The paroches symbolizes the curtain of which separated the holy section of the Mishkan (Tabernacle) and the Temple from the Kodesh HaKodashim, the Holy of Holies. The paroches cover is typically made of velvet and embroidered with metallic thread, silk, and ornamental beads, and may often come in various colors - red, blue, green or gold matching the Torah covers (Torah mantles), bima cover & amud cover. During the High Holidays, the parochet, Torah covers and everything else are changed to immaculate white to symbolize the purity and holiness of the Days of Awe.

Skillfully hand crafted, the parochet are richly ornamented with artistic art, depicting motifs of ritual references such as Lions and 10 Commandments, Eitz Chaim (Tree of Life), Shema Yisrael or High Holiday symbols, often featuring verses from the Torah hand made or machine embroidered.

Like Torah covers & other synagogue embroidery, the parochet is commonly donated by individual members of the congregation, frequently to commemorate life-cycle events or honor a loved. A custom dedication, or inscription, is typically embroidered directly on the parochet in gold or silver matching the parochet design.
