Small Medieval synagogue in Buda

The small medieval synagogue in Buda presumably existed in the fourteenth century and was later included in the structure of a dwelling house. The original layout of the synagogue is not clear. The preserved wall paintings include a Star of David inscribed with the text of the priestly benediction pronounced by the cohanim when they bless the worshippers, and a bow and arrow, inscribed with the Prayer of Hannah. Currently the synagogue is a museum. It also houses a lapidarium with Jewish tombstones from the medieval and Ottoman periods (thirteenth to seventeenth centuries).
