The Torah ark was constructed, probably in the late 19th century, in the shape of a large closet. It has been partially preserved (some damage is evident). The Torah ark includes decorative images made of carved and gilded wood. It stands against a painted background (mural) depicting a purple curtain. The upper tier of the Torah ark extends nearly to the ceiling and contains multiple levels of decoration. The lower level depicts lions flanking the Tablets of the Law. The next level depicts griffins blowing shofars. The top level depicts a double-headed eagle wearing a crown.
