Host Item CJA Sacred and Ritual Objects-105-A172672
Description The central part of the wooden dome is painted in dark blue with stars, while the rest is painted in light blue. The flat parts of the ceiling as well as the lower rim of the dome are decorated with foliage, which probably dates back to 1902. The rising sun is inscribed, "ממזרח שמש עד מבואו נהלל שםיי" (" From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the Lord is to be praised", Ps. 113:3 ). The inscription is located on the eastern facet above the Torah ark. The sun is painted on top of the foliage, so it was probably added in the 1920s.
