Width at front: c. 3.2 metres

The Stuhl was created in 1560 by the lengthwise division of the neighbouring Steg. With its frontal width of c. 3.20 metres it was one of the narrower houses in the Judengasse.
Among the first occupants of the house were Simon, the son of Siskind Bingen from the Strauß, and Josef, the son of Isaac Bing from the Wolf. Occupants in the 17th century included the shochet Jakob Parnass, and in the 18th century they included a schoolmaster, the community scribe and a dealer in hides, together with their families. For the longest period (over 150 years) the house was occupied by members of the Rapp family, also known as Bing. This family also included the rabbi David Rappen, who was born here, worked in Marktbreit in Franconia as a rabbi and was buried in Rödelheim following his death in 1742.
The house was destroyed in the fire of 1711 but soon rebuilt. In 1871 the city took it over for demolition.
