Sermon Stands, Podiums, Lecterns and Pulpits To Serve Your Synagogue Needs 0

A synagogue (or often called temple) is a Jewish place of worship, as well as a place to study and often serves as a community center.

These synagogues typically contain several prominent pieces of furniture, including:

  1. The Ark – A cupboard where the Torah Scrolls, which contain text of the Hebrew Bible is kept and a desk from which to read the Torah.


  1. An Eternal Light, burning before the Ark.


  1. Two Candelabras.


  1. Pews.


  1. A Bimah (Raised Platform) from which the scripture passages are read and from which services are often conducted. There are various forms of the bimah, depending on the type of Torah Scroll and the customs of each synagogue community.


Other furniture that may be found in a synagogue is a Cantor Pillar, which is sometimes used as a sermon stand for the rabbi or speaker to stand before the member of the synagogue.

Also, another piece of furniture that may be used as a stand for the rabbi to place his notes or books is a shtender, which is similar to a pulpit, lectern or podium.

We have many sermon stands, podiums and lecterns to serve your synagogue.

Modern and Casual Podiums For The Non-Denominational Church 0


In the atmosphere of the casual, comfortable and welcoming environment of a Non-Denominational Church a traditional pulpit or podium would look out of place.

A stylish, contemporary and/or modern podium would be best suited for these surroundings.

But to better understand why, we need to explore the history past and present of the Non-Denominational Church.

In the 20th Century Non-Denominational Churches started to appear in the United States in the form of independent churches.

These churches saw continuing growth, but in the 21st Century, it experienced significant growth, here in the United States and elsewhere.  In fact, it is the third largest Christian group in the United States, after the Roman Catholic Church and Southern Baptist.

The Non-Denominational Church seeks a unique and modern approach to Christianity and can adapt more readily to an ever-changing world.

Young people are attracted to these churches because of the freedom from strict church doctrine and rituals. Also, by people who feel they have been classified as outcast or undesirable by society.  The diversity found within the Non-Denominational Church is also attracting married person with differing religious beliefs or backgrounds.

With their casual and comfortable environment, these churches encourage people to come as you are (jeans, t-shirt, etc.) and join the diverse group of people and follow a policy of accepting followers from a wide range of religious backgrounds.

So, with all this in mind, we have many podiums and lecterns that will be just right for your church.

Protect Your Podium Or Lectern Investment 0

Why not protect your podium or lectern investment, with an optional podium cover or travel/carrying case.

Podium covers, will preserve the finish, keep it free of dust and safeguard it from scratches and chips when not in use and it will be ready to go when you are ready to make a presentation.

Some of our podiums and lecterns have travel/carrying case available as an option.

The travel/carrying case is a worry-free way to protect your podium or lectern when not in use and also provides a safe way to transport it from one venue to another.

They are strong, rugged, sturdy and durable cases with most having heavy-duty handles, heavy-duty web straps and heavy-duty steel corners.

So, you can travel with your podium in confidence without fear of damage.  In addition to all this the case will stand up to wear and tear time after time.

Below are just some of the products we have that offer optional travel/carry cases.
