View looking south at the southern, or Jerusalem wall of the building. Directly in front of the far wall - in the center of the image - is one course of stones of the raised platform called a "bema." It has been suggested that a wooden cabinet was constructed upon it.  This cabinet (ark) would have housed the Torah scrolls.

The building is basilica in style and modern wooden benches are in the central nave. To the right and left are the side aisles. For a detail of the "Ionic style" capitals Click Here. The synagogue measures 49 x 57 ft. [15 x 17.5 m.].

This reconstructed building is the second of the two synagogues that stood on this site.
