Synagogue Translation

sarahkucera took the following picture inside an abandoned synagogue in Chicago:

What does it say above the doorway? From the bits of Hebrew I remember, I'd guess it says something about 'this [maybe talking about the world?] is an awful place; but it's not, but rather the house of G-d, and this is the gateway to heaven.' But I'm nowhere near fluent in Hebrew, and haven't studied in some time, so I was curious for an expert's translation. Thanks!
