Ohel Moshe Synagogue
This is where the first synagogue was built in the Borochov neighborhood. In 1928, some of the members of the neighborhood asked for a plot to erect a synagogue. There were members who opposed the establishment of a synagogue for fear of harming the character of the neighborhood. Only after a referendum was made between the members was it decided to approve its establishment. With the immigration to Israel of Rabbi Moshe Goldstein, the father of Solomon, Aharon and Naftali Goldstein, vigorous action began to build. He was also assisted by Rabbi Mordechai Yosef Mayberg and Mordechai Bonnet. In 1935, the hut that was the first synagogue was erected.
In 1950, the Goldstein brothers made a promise to their father, and built a handsome building in the hut. The synagogue is called "Ohel Moshe" after the name of Rabbi Moshe Goldstein.
