Photographer's Note

This is the interior of the Remuh Synagogue (16th century). Remuh is the abbreviation for Rabbi Moshe (Isserles), a jewish scholar of 16th century. Situated in the jewish quarter of Cracow called Kazimierz. At the wall is the shrine of the torah, with the ten commandements written above it in hebrew. To the right you see the gates of the bimah, the place where the torah is read to the audience. The bimah is the centre of the room. So you know it is a small synagogue. And it is the only one in Cracow that is still in use.
