Dura Europos Synagogue

The synagogue at Dura Europos is the only painted synagogue yet discovered. The frescoes depict stories from the Life of Moses, the Vision of Ezekiel of the Valley of the Dry Bones, the Sacrifice of Isaac and other Jewish imagery. The roof tiles also featured some figural motifs amongst a whole range of varied imagery. The frescoes are now housed in the National Museum in Damascus and only the footprint of the site remains in Dura.
