The Great Synagogue


The Great Synagogue (Slat-Il-Kbiri) was the most ancient synagogue in Baghdad. This structure is replicated in a space which is about an eighth of the synagogue's original size. It includes a Tevah (Bima), and Torah Ark containing scrolls from Iraq and the Far East. In the alcoves of the synagogue, the Jewish festivals and holidays are presented according to the customs of Babylonian Jewry. One can see holy items, a scribe at work, unique Iraqi lamps and many other interesting objects.
