Description

Learn about Jewish place of worship in the Belfast synagogue. In this short tour the presenter explains the design and function of different parts of the synagogue, seating arrangement and what clothing is worn during worship.

The focal point of every synagogue is an Ark, which is a cupboard where the Torah Scrolls, which contain the text of the Hebrew Bible, are kept, and a desk from which to read the Torah.
