The Jewish Synagogue

Located on the first floor of the building that also housed the Jewish School and the rabbi’s house, the Synagogue has been preserved with the features derived from the interventions carried out in the 19th and 20th centuries, which changed its original intended use: from a place of worship to headquarters of the “Mutual Aid Society for the Rivarolese Workers” up to a residential appurtenance. The main room, namely the Meeting Hall, as usual, does not overlook the public space, but is hidden by the porticoed building curtain overlooking Piazza Finzi. Reachable by an external staircase, it consists of a large naturally lit room which still shows traces of the Aron, the Jewish altar, on the eastern wall. The walls of the Hall are decorated with stucco and tempera and ends with a cloister vault of stuccoed lathwork in which a fake skylight is inserted. The matroneum (women’s gallery), accessible by a small staircase located on the opposite side of the entrance door, has been preserved.
