Przysucha

In Przysucha we found an open synagogue in the process of renovation. There was a four-pillar bimah and a distinct nine-vault pattern for the worship area. There was a large women’s gallery over the entrance. Apparently it was originally reached by an interior stairs; however, there was no sign of any such stairs today, with the result that the women’s gallery was inaccessible. The aron ha-kkodesh was present but unremarkable. There were iron beams supporting the bimah columns, but no other signs of active, current renovation work.

The cemetery contained what appeared to be a modern ohel and one stone propped against a fence by the entrance.
