Synagogues built after the period of iconoclasm, such as the synagogue at Jericho, did not feature figural representations. Jericho’s synagogue mosaic is decorated with geometric designs and Jewish symbols, including a figurative Ark of the Scrolls and a menorah flanked by a lulav (date palm frond) and shofar (ram’s horn). Inscribed below the menorah is a blessing: “Peace unto Israel.”
