This stained glass window depicting Moses with the Tablets, now on the western side of the Schoenfeld-Gardner Chapel of Temple De Hirsch Sinai, Seattle, Washington, U.S. is one of the few surviving elements of the original 1908 Temple De Hirsch, where it was located on the east end over the Ark and Torah. It dates from c. 1908; a text at the bottom says "In memory of Fred Schwabacher the gift of his mother".
