The prayer hall is a one-storey free standing trapezoid structure with a curved roof. The façade is a northern porch leading to a double-winged rectangular door in turn leading to the hall. A staircase leading to the women section is built to the east of the porch. A rectangular elongated window runs along the porch corresponding to the upper gallery.
Six rectangular windows are set on the western and eastern walls.
The trapezoid structure rises to the height of one and a half floors. Five Torah arks occupy the entire southern wall, the reader's desk is situated in the centre, thus creating a centralised liturgical space (see: Remarks: no. 1).The central ark forms a north-south axis with the teivah and the main entrance. The sittings are on chairs and benches placed along the walls and in front of the ark.
The women section is a balcony which runs along the northern wall above the entrance.
Twelve rectangular windows are set on the western and eastern walls, six on each wall (see: Remarks: no. 2).
The walls are paved with marble at the height of one storey, while mosaics ornament the upper space in various themes: above the Torah ark are the Tables of the Covenant with the beginnings of the Ten Commandments, the seven species and the following biblical verses, interlaced with wheat:
"השקיפה/ ממעון קדשך/ מן השמים/ וברך/ את עמך/ את/ ישראל/ (ואת האדמה אשר נתתה לנו כאשר נשבעת לאבתינו ארץ זבת חלב ודבש)" (דברים כו:טו).
"Look down from thy holy habitation, from heaven, and bless thy peopleIsrael(and the land which thou hast given us, as thou swarest unto our fathers, a land that floweth with milk and honey)" (Deut. 26:15).
"וחג שבעת/ תעשה/ לך/ בכורי/ קציר חטים" (שמות לד:כב).
"And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the first fruits of wheat harvest…" (Ex. 34:22).
A view ofJerusalemis placed on the upper panel of the eastern wall.
