The bimah at ul. Żydowska in Tarnów is the only visible remain of the Old Synagogue built in 1630.
The building represented the Baroque-Mannerist style, on a square plan, in the middle of the synagogue there was a bimah in a form of the canopy, from which the Torah scrolls were read. The so-called support bimah, rising upward to the roof, was a unique element of the structure, existing only in a few Polish synagogues. Today, the bimah, fenced and canopied, is the central venue of the Days of Galician Jews celebrated annually in Tarnów.
