morning prayers

This place - in the ultra-Orthodox city of Bnei Brak (Israel) - is known to be one of the most active synagogues in the world (prayer services taking place in parallel around the clock in multiple rooms). The photograph was taken during the morning prayer (called Shacharit). The reflection is from marbled wall.
