The back is an elevated rectangular frame enclosing an ogee arch, reaching to the wooden ceiling. It is divided by a horizontal bar into two parts
the lower is subdivided in its centre into two square panels, on which prayers are hung. The lower wooden bar is decorated with a floral pattern and topped by triangles. While the upper bar is adorned by a pair of graded wooden hooks facing the ark and additional toothed triangles with hooks on its front. The desk is painted brown. Two metal blue boxes are placed on the back of the teivah, and are used for memorial candles.
