Inside the Dar Bishi Synagogue in Tripoli, Libya, paint peels from the walls and refuse litters the floors. The entrances and most of the windows have been covered with bricks, although the windows high up in the synagogue's dome remain open, letting sunlight in to illuminate the ruined room below. Despite the efforts of Dr. David Gerbi, a Libyan Jew who returned to Tripoli in 2011 after more than 40 years abroad, the synagogue remains closed and empty. However, it has escaped the fate of many of Libya's synagogues, which have been repurposed into other buildings or demolished entirely. The Bahri (בחרי, بحري) Synagogue and mikveh in Yefren is on the edge of the city, near the ridge, had a mikveh in the compound as well. There seems to have been a larger room and smaller room with the larger room having multiple columns and archways to support the ceiling and a second story for ladies. There were minimal windows in the prayer room. There are some ceiling inscriptions in this synagogue as well.
