old Jewish temple

September 13, 2004

The entrance to the temple and the upstairs gallery. Women might have sat upstairs, since they were traditionally separated from men during services. This photo also gives a sense of the proportions of the room (cubic rooms feel weirdly tall and narrow from the bottom) and the very Moorish-looking decorations that remain on parts of the walls.
