20 Description

The western wall of the prayer hall features three paintings arranged in a line: an illustration to Psalm 137:1-3 depicting people walking beside the rivers of Babylon; another Biblical scene depicting Noah's Ark and the figure of Noah himself; and a panoramic view of Jerusalem. It should be noted that images of human figures are extremely rare in synagogue decoration. The prayer hall also includes a partially-preserved architectural decoration in the form of tall Corinthian columns with a complicated cornice.

The painting depicts Noah as a bearded old man dressed in a robe in the center. Behind and to the right of him stretches the Ark in the form of a barracks building. It has the appearance of extending infinitely. Over the entrance to the building flies a red flag. Pairs of land animals proceed toward the Ark's entrance while a flock of birds flies nearby.

The painting depicts a scene from Psalm 137: "By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down and wept, when we remembered Zion. We hung our harps upon the willows...” (Psalm 137:1-2).

Musical instruments hang from old trees alongside a deep river. A group of people wearing long black dress like the Hasidim stroll along the river and sit on the grass. The painting expresses deep folk humor.

20 Description

The painting depicts a panorama of Jerusalem. Jerusalem is depicted as a large city with ribbon-like rows of houses, among which rise towers. The site of the Temple appears at center left, recognizable by the gray cupola of the Dome of the Rock. The city is enclosed by a stone wall with a gate. Two images of a Magen David are depicted on the gate.

The western wall of the prayer hall features three paintings arranged in a line: an illustration to Psalm 137:1-3 depicting people walking beside the rivers of Babylon; another Biblical scene depicting Noah's Ark and the figure of Noah himself; and a panoramic view of Jerusalem. It should be noted that images of human figures are extremely rare in synagogue decoration. The prayer hall also includes a partly-preserved architectural decoration in the form of tall Corinthian columns with a complicated cornice.

20 Description

The western wall of the prayer hall features three paintings arranged in a line: an illustration to Psalm 137:1-3 depicting people walking beside the rivers of Babylon; another Biblical scene depicting Noah's Ark and the figure of Noah himself; and a panoramic view of Jerusalem. It should be noted that images of human figures are extremely rare in synagogue decoration. The prayer hall also includes a partly-preserved architectural decoration in the form of tall Corinthian columns with a complicated cornice.

20 Description

The western wall of the prayer hall features three paintings arranged in a line: an illustration to Psalm 137:1-3 depicting people walking beside the rivers of Babylon; another Biblical scene depicting Noah's Ark and the figure of Noah himself; and a panoramic view of Jerusalem. It should be noted that images of human figures are extremely rare in synagogue decoration. The prayer hall also includes a partly-preserved architectural decoration in the form of tall Corinthian columns with a complicated cornice.
