Women’s Gallery

Only the rear portion of the women’s balcony, a typical feature of orthodox synagogues, survived into the 1970s. Markings on the main floor revealed the location of supports for a gallery that had wrapped around three sides of the sanctuary. Century-old press reports confirmed it had been fitted with a solid walnut railing. The Jewish Historical Society reconstructed missing pieces and restored the balcony to its original appearance.
