Arms : Azure between two menorot a representation of the Holy Ark Or charged on the tympanum with a flame issuant from a vessel Gules the ark ensigned by a closed crown topped with a magen David also Or;
Crest: Between two eagle wings displayed Argent highlighted Sable rising from a circlet of roses Gules seeded Or alternating with lily flowers Argent and maple leaves Gules veined Or an open Torah scroll each roll tipped with a magen David Or;
Motto: In Hebrew from Genesis 28:17, meaning “This is none other than the House of God and this the Gate of Heaven”.
