Jewish Architecture
  Rebbe's Kloyz in Buhuşi - Main prayer hall

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Khaimovich, Boris, 2012

According to the inscription on the west wall, seen in a photograph of 1969, the prayer hall was painted in the 1930s (the last letter in the date could not be read). During the renovation of the 1980s all images were repainted, some of them were significantly changed.

The murals adorn all the walls and the flat ceiling of the central prayer hall. The murals are made in a unit composition based on a system of architectural decoration, borders and frames, which include many paintings with different motives. All the spaces between the windows are decorated by painted pilasters. The zodiac signs are placed in the capitals of the pilasters. The images of the holy graves situated on the middle of the pilasters. 

Painted ceilings consist of a central oval decorative plafond and a broad band of the decorative border around the perimeter of the praying hall. White eagle with a white-blue standard placed in the center of the ceiling. Four animals from Mishna Avot are situated inside of the plafond on the four sides of the world.

Image of the Temple of Messianic times, accompanied by romantic landscapes within a round medallions are placed on the west side of the prayer hall. Several landscapes and symbolic motifs also placed on the western wall.
