I blogged last year about the Ohel Yizthak Synagogue which bothered some Arabs. The synagogue was built on property purchased from the Khalidi Clan in 1867, opened in 1904 and closed in 1938 due to Arab riots.
Today, I got the chance to visit it. It has been reconstructed and restored exactly the way it was before being destroyed after 1948 using pictures which are displayed on the wall.
The history of the synagogue
The inside, the bimah in the center
The Aron Kodesh, the Ark of the Torah Scrolls
More of the inside, direction is east-north
The Women's Section above and behind
The windows of the north side
Close-up of the Bimah
And the progress of the Beit Yaakov Synagogue, the Churvah.
