The lattice window in the wooden synagogue in Gwozdziec, as well as other Polish synagogues, located on the western wall ‘…was a conduit for the passage of prayer to God and a place within the synagogue through with God / Shekhinah, concealed behind the lattice, could observe the congregation....The lattice serves as an architectural device to simultaneously conceal and reveal God's presence to the congregation....’
-Thomas C. Hubka, Resplendant Synagogue, Brandeis University Press of New England, 2003, p. 154
