20 Description

The Old Wooden Synagogue in Piatra Neamț dates from 1766. It underwent restoration in 1826, 1854, 1870, 1928, and 2010. The synagogue building consists of a rectangular prayer hall with a women's gallery on the north side. The interior floor is sunken one and a half meters below the exterior ground level. An octagonal wooden dome, typical of 18th-century wooden synagogue architecture, rises above the bimah in the center of the main prayer hall. A stone vestibule attached to the west side of the wooden building functions in winter as a smaller, warmer prayer hall.

The carved wooden octagonal bimah and the Torah ark were created in 1835 by the master craftsman Shraga Yitshak ben Moshe. These features represent the principal decorations of the main prayer hall. A single picture adorns the western stone wall of the hall. It depicts Jerusalem and the Temple Mount inside a painted frame made to appear as if "hung" from the wall.

20 Description

The Old Wooden Synagogue in Piatra Neamț dates from 1766. It underwent restoration in 1826, 1854, 1870, 1928, and 2010. The synagogue building consists of a rectangular prayer hall with a women's gallery on the north side. The interior floor is sunken one and a half meters below the exterior ground level. An octagonal wooden dome, typical of 18th-century wooden synagogue architecture, rises above the bimah in the center of the main prayer hall. A stone vestibule attached to the west side of the wooden building functions in winter as a smaller, warmer prayer hall.

The carved wooden octagonal bimah and the Torah ark were created in 1835 by the master craftsman Shraga Yitshak ben Moshe. These features represent the principal decorations of the main prayer hall. A single picture adorns the western stone wall of the hall. It depicts Jerusalem and the Temple Mount inside a painted frame made to appear as if "hung" from the wall.

20 Description

The Old Wooden Synagogue in Piatra Neamț dates from 1766. It underwent restoration in 1826, 1854, 1870, 1928, and 2010. The synagogue building consists of a rectangular prayer hall with a women's gallery on the north side. The interior floor is sunken one and a half meters below the exterior ground level. An octagonal wooden dome, typical of 18th-century wooden synagogue architecture, rises above the bimah in the center of the main prayer hall. A stone vestibule attached to the west side of the wooden building functions in winter as a smaller, warmer prayer hall.

The carved wooden octagonal bimah and the Torah ark were created in 1835 by the master craftsman Shraga Yitshak ben Moshe. These features represent the principal decorations of the main prayer hall. A single picture adorns the western stone wall of the hall. It depicts Jerusalem and the Temple Mount inside a painted frame made to appear as if "hung" from the wall.

20 Description

This painting depicts the Temple in Jerusalem in the form of the Dome of the Rock. The octagonal cupola structure on the Temple Mount is surrounded by numerous smaller buildings in the background. These other buildings of Jerusalem - white houses with red tile roofs and a few towers - extend to the horizon. The city of Jerusalem itself is enclosed within a fortified wall in the foreground, with the Golden Gate on the right side of the picture. A valley featuring a tree and a sandy path lies between the walled city and the viewer. The painting represents a realistic depiction of Jerusalem in that it includes both minarets and church towers.

The painting was apparently created by Mendel Grünberg in the 1920s and then completely repainted at a later date. Note that the Old Wooden Synagogue in Piatra Neamț dates from 1766 and underwent restoration in 1826, 1854, 1870, 1928, and 2010.

20 Description

The Old Wooden Synagogue in Piatra Neamț dates from 1766. It underwent restoration in 1826, 1854, 1870, 1928, and 2010. The synagogue building consists of a rectangular prayer hall with a women's gallery on the north side. The interior floor is sunken one and a half meters below the exterior ground level. An octagonal wooden dome, typical of 18th-century wooden synagogue architecture, rises above the bimah in the center of the main prayer hall. A stone vestibule attached to the west side of the wooden building functions in winter as a smaller, warmer prayer hall.

The carved wooden octagonal bimah and the Torah ark were created in 1835 by the master craftsman Shraga Yitshak ben Moshe. These features represent the principal decorations of the main prayer hall. A single picture adorns the western stone wall of the hall. It depicts Jerusalem and the Temple Mount inside a painted frame made to appear as if "hung" from the wall.
