Description A row of semicircular arches with Stars of David inside is painted on both sides of the eastern wall under the ceiling. A painted inscription ממזרח שמש עד מבואו ("From the rising of the sun to its setting") runs between the arches and windows to the south from the Torah ark, and its continuation מהלל שם ה׳ ("the name of the Lord is to be praised," Ps. 113:3) runs to its north. Columns are painted between the windows. Some effaced fragments of similar paintings - columns, arches, and Stars of David - are still visible on the southern and northern walls of the prayer hall. Remnants of painted decorations are visible also on the walls of the women's section.
