Jewish Architecture Synagogue in Râmnicu Sărat, Romania
The Synagogue in Râmnicu Sărat was reportedly built in 1855. [See: A. Streja and L. Schwarz, The Synagogue in Romania, 2nd. ed. (Bucharest: Hasefer, 2009), pp. 106, 273.]
Sixteen lancet windows – six on the north side, six on the south side, and four on the east side – give light to the prayer hall. A second tier of small round windows lights the women's gallery. The windows are decorated on the building exterior with intervening pilasters and curved blind arches. A semicircular apse on the east side of the building marks the niche of the Torah ark.
The vestibule of the synagogue serves as a small prayer room and leads to the main prayer hall. The women's gallery occupies an upper tier (balcony) that compasses the main prayer hall on three sides.
