Torah Ark In Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue

Torah ark in Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue

Two Torah arks were housed in Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue

Shot at Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue in Yangon, Myanmar.

The major religion in Myanmar is Buddhism. Yet there are also Christian, Muslim, and others. And one of the minorities is Jew. During Burma's Colonial era, some Jew migrated to this country. Walking the streets in Yangon, it was impossible to find the Jewish atmosphere. So Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue was the only place to feel the Jewish culture in this city.

It was said that this synagogue was built by Jewish people came from the middle east and India in 1896. Entering the synagogue, the building was deserted. That made sense because the Jewish population of this country was fewer than 19. It could be much uncommon to meet Jewish people here. In the back of the hall, two Torah arks were housed. They were shining under the light. In spite of few worshipers, both of the hall and arks seemed to be well looked after.
