[ Shtibel is a "one room" synagogue.  Usually a room in the Rabbi's house or someone who allows a mynian or two to come together and pray.  Most shtetlach had, in addition to synagogues, several shtiblech.  In shtetlach were there was no Synagogue and if people could not travel to a nearby town with a synagogue they used the Shtibel for all occasions. Shtibel (singular) literally means a little house in Yiddish.  S.L.B.]
