The sheet displays portions of the murals
found in the Jewish synagogue at Dura Europos (or Dura Europa) in
eastern Syria. This synagogue was in use in the 3rd century during the
time of the Roman occupation. The murals illustrate the history and
worship of the Israelites who used the synagogue. It was a form of
Judaism unlike that of Rabbinic Judaism.
From the left, the first stamp shows
Samuel anointing David as the second King of Judah. The middle stamp
shows the Torah niche. And the stamp on the right shows a picture of
the Temple and the walls of Jerusalem. The background shows other
images from the murals.
The souvenir sheet celebrates the 300th anniversary of
the occupation of Jerusalem by the Israelites.
