Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue information
The lovingly maintained interior of this 1896 building contains a bimah (platform holding the reading table for the Torah) in the centre of the main sanctuary and a women’s balcony upstairs. The wooden ceiling features the original blue-and-white Star of David motif. It's best to contact Sammy Samuels at email@example.com to be sure of gaining access to the synagogue.
