Description

The Great Synagogue in Bârlad was founded in 1789. The synagogue building is rectangular in shape and features arched windows on two levels. The windows on the second level give light to the women's gallery (balcony). A vestibule extension and a small rectangular apsis (marking the place of the Torah ark niche) protrude from the west and east sides of the structure.
