A view down into the immersion pool. The pool's spiral shape is continued in the small blue stones in the bottom of the pool. The 49 small round stones (7 x 7) have symbolic meaning in Judaism (e.g. the 49 days of the omer, from Pesach to Shavuot) and the round chambered nautilus tile in the center makes 50. Light from the overhead dome and the surrounding windows is reflected in the pool. It's beautiful!
