View of the west wall and the entrance to the synagogue. Landscape scenes are depicted in the upper tier above the windows of women’s section.

The big bull (Behemoth?) is depicted in the central part of the western wall. Arch with two columns at the sides depicted above the entrance door. Two lions flank the arch. These gates were decorated with "Crown of the Kingdom".

The inscriptions are described inside and above the door:

  זה השער לה, צדיקים יבאו בו (תהלים 118 20)

This is the gate of the Lord through which the righteous may enter (Psalom 118:20)

 

מה נורה המקום הזה אין זה בית אלוהים וזה שער השמים (בראשית  כח יז)

“How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.”( Genesis 18 17)

 

 

The word אגלא"" was written on their right side.
