20 Description

The Torah ark is set within a horse-shoe arched niche in the centre of the north-eastern wall. It is flanked by two additional rectangular niches serving as genizah.

The horse-shoe arch is supported by two rectangular pilasters and is blocked by a wooden board with a central elongated double winged door. A verse is inscribed on the arch in black, square Hebrew letters and reads:

"זה השער לה' צדיקים יבואו בו" (תהלים קיח:כ).

"This is the gate of the Lord, into which the righteous shall enter" (Ps. 118:20).

 

The arch is decorated with painted dots while the arch's spandrels and pilasters are decorated with colourful ceramic tiles.

The door is divided into four panels arranged in two registers, used for keeping the scrolls. A smaller double door for prayer books is set below the main one.

A rectangular paper plaque is attached to the top of the door, inscribed in Hebrew square letters, and reads:

"שיויתי/ יהוה/ לנגדי תמיד" (תהילים טז:ח)          

"I have set the Lord always before me” (Ps. 16:8).

The inner space is a rectangular niche divided into a main upper section for the Torah scrolls and a smaller lower part. A mat covers the floor while the walls of the inner space are covered with Torah curtains.

The rectangular genizah niches are blocked by double winged wooden doors divided into four panels arranged in two registers.

Three rectangular paper plaques with prayers are hung on both sides of the ark and on the genizah doors.

A bench is built along the eastern wall, as part of the sitting arrangement.

20 Description

The rectangular synagogue complex comprises a prayer hall built between two inner courtyards set in a north-south axis and is surrounded by a wall.

Exterior

The exterior wall surrounding the complex forms a free standing unit.
The eastern side of the wall bordering the alley has three entrances and windows set inbetween the two southern entrances. The northern, which was probably the former main entrance, leads to the northern courtyard, while the two other doors lead to the southern one and are in contemporary use. The rectangular windows are set inside protruding frames and are almost as high as the entrances.
The northern side has an additional entrance to the northern courtyard.
The western wall is blocked while the southern wall is shared with other buildings.

 Interior

The rectangular narrow prayer hall is situated in between two rectangular courtyards.

 Southern courtyard

The rectangular inner southern courtyard nowadays functions as the main entrance to the synagogue. It is surrounded by a roofed arcade and benches are built along the courtyard's walls. The courtyard is partly shaded by a thatch used for Sukkoth (the Festival of Tabernacles). A water pit is under the thatch.
The northern arcade leads to the prayer hall through a door placed at its center. Two windows flank the door from each side.
A rectangular niche is reached through a door at the south-west corner and probably serves as a store-room.

Northern courtyard

The rectangular inner northern courtyard is plain and surrounded by walls. Nowadays it is reached through a door set at the northern wall of the prayer hall . Windows flank the door: two windows at its right and one at its left.

20 Description

The facade-like Torah ark is set within a rectangular deep niche in the centre of the eastern wall of the prayer hall. It is flanked by two additional rectangular niches, serving as Geniza cupboards.

The niche is enclosed within a horseshoe arch and is blocked by a wooden board with a double winged door.

The horseshoe arch is supported by two rectangular pilasters and surrounded by a rectangular frame.

It is decorated with painted dots and bears the inscription:

"זה השער לה' צדיקים יבואו בו"

 "This gate of the Lord, into which the righteous shall enter" (Psalms118:20)

 The arch encloses at its center an elongated double winged door divided into four panels arranged in two registers. This door surmounts a smaller double door corresponding to the lower part.

A rectangular plaque is set at the center of the Torah ark bearing the inscription:

"שיויתי/ יהוה/ לנגדי תמיד" (תהילים טז:ח)              “I have set the Lord always before me” (Ps. 16:8)

The space between the ark and the rectangular frame is decorated with colorful ceramic tiles. Additional tiles also cover the pilasters.

The inner space is a rectangular niche divided into a main upper section for the Torah scrolls and a smaller lower part. A mat covers the floor while the walls of the inner space are covered with Torah curtains.

The rectangular Geniza niches are blocked by double winged wooden doors divided into four panels arranged in two registers.

Three rectangular plaques, bearing prayers, are hung on both sides of the ark, on the Geniza doors. One on the right and two on the left.

A bench is built beneath the Torah Ark, as part of the sitting arrangement.

20 Description

The facade-like Torah ark is set within a rectangular deep niche in the centre of the eastern wall of the prayer hall. It is flanked by two additional rectangular niches, serving as Geniza cupboards.

The niche is enclosed within a horseshoe arch and is blocked by a wooden board with a double winged door.

The horseshoe arch is supported by two rectangular pilasters and surrounded by a rectangular frame.

It is decorated with painted dots and bears the inscription:

"זה השער לה' צדיקים יבואו בו"

 "This gate of the Lord, into which the righteous shall enter" (Psalms118:20)

 The arch encloses at its center an elongated double winged door divided into four panels arranged in two registers. This door surmounts a smaller double door corresponding to the lower part.

A rectangular plaque is set at the center of the Torah ark bearing the inscription:

"שיויתי/ יהוה/ לנגדי תמיד" (תהילים טז:ח)              “I have set the Lord always before me” (Ps. 16:8)

The space between the ark and the rectangular frame is decorated with colorful ceramic tiles. Additional tiles also cover the pilasters.

The inner space is a rectangular niche divided into a main upper section for the Torah scrolls and a smaller lower part. A mat covers the floor while the walls of the inner space are covered with Torah curtains.

The rectangular Geniza niches are blocked by double winged wooden doors divided into four panels arranged in two registers.

Three rectangular plaques, bearing prayers, are hung on both sides of the ark, on the Geniza doors. One on the right and two on the left.

A bench is built beneath the Torah Ark, as part of the sitting arrangement.
