For B at ABC Wednesday today . . .
--a bench on a bima.
In every synagogue the bima is the raised platform to which people come up to read from the Torah scroll.
Above the holy ark, where the Torah scrolls reside, the Great Synagogue of Jerusalem has a magnificent stained glass window.
The Great Synagogue is on the right. The two tablets on top remind us of the Ten Commandments.
Enlarge the photo and see if the doors remind you of the breastplate of the High Priest from the days of the Temple.
Hechal Shlomo, former seat of Israel's Chief Rabbinate, is to the left.
That is where we saw the hundreds of Persian carpets ready for auction in yesterday's post.
