Adorning the front of the Chicago Loop Synagogue is a large sculpture by Israeli artist Henri Azaz.

Called Hands of Peace, this abstract bronze work welcomes visitors in both English and Hebrew, quoting a blessing from the Bible’s Book of Numbers: The Lord bless thee and keep thee; the Lord make His face to shine upon thee… and give thee peace.
