The Ark is a special cupboard which is found facing Jerusalem on the Eastern wall. The Ark contains the Torah scrolls and represents the Holy of Holies in the Temple.

The Bimah is the reading desk which is found usually at the centre of the synagogue. It is where the Torah scrolls are read from.

Stained glass windows are found in some Synagogues. They depict Jewish history. Some will represent festivals that Jews celebrate for example Passover and Sukkot.

Torah Scrolls are kept in the Ark. Jews believe they are the word of God and they contain 613 laws which Jews should try and live by. They form part of the Jewish worship in the Synagogue.

The man and women sit separately in an Orthodox Synagogue to avoid distraction while worshipping. Women will usually sit in the women’s gallery upstairs and men sit downstairs.

The Ner Tamid is the everlasting light which represents the light that burnt in the Temple. The light represents Gods presence.

On the wall above the Ark there is often the 10 commandments, this reminds Jews of the 10 commandments given to their ancestors by Moses.

A seat(s) and a smaller reading desk is situated at the front by the Ark. These are for the officials who assist will the running of the Synagogue.
