A Visit at the Ohel Yitzhak Synagogue

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 pictures:

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.
