1) This synagogue was destroyed during the "Kristallnacht" pogrom in November 1938.
2) The Ark [Hebrew: Aron ha - Kodesh; "Holy Ark"] is the receptacle in the synagogue in which the Torah scrolls are kept… According to Jewish Law, the Ark is the holiest part of the synagogue after the Torah scrolls themselves. [Encyclopaedia Judaica, 1972.] Close
