The surviving wall murals in the main prayer hall of the Great Synagogue in Botoșani probably date from the 1950s or 1960s, though they may derive from an earlier original (1930s?). The wall decoration program consists of painted columns located between windows along the perimeter of the building, painted banners depicting the Tribes of Israel located beneath the windows, and a decorative border located along the bottom section of the walls.
A painting on the west wall depicts a city (probably Jerusalem) under a blue sky. The urban structures depicted in this painting have obviously been modeled after images in the vault (plafond). The painting depicts the houses or other urban structures as massive cylindrical towers (mostly of white brick) with low semicircular (or conical) red domes. These towers are located in close juxtaposition with each other. Rows of narrow windows set on multiple levels interrupt the smooth faces of these structures. Tall, narrow white towers (probably former minarets) topped by Zionist flags stand adjacent to the larger cylindrical structures.
