בית הכנסת "ישורון"
בית הכנסת "ישורון" נבנה בסגנון בתי הכנסת באירופה, בשנת תרע"ב (1912), מתרומתו של מאיר גנקין ממוסקבה. היה זה המבנה הציבורי הראשון שנבנה בגדרה.
מאז שהוקם הבניין התקיימו בו ישיבות ועד הקהילה,הוא שימש כמבנה לאירועים ציבוריים וכבית ספר, ואף שימש למגורי השמש ומשפחתו. במלחמת העולם הראשונה, בשנת תרע"ח (1917), הסתתרו בגג של הבניין יהודים שלא רצו להתגייס לצבא הטורקי. בתקופת המנדט הבריטי, היה במרתף הבניין "סליק" של כוחות ההגנה. לאחר קום המדינה, היו בבניין משרדי המועצה המקומית.
בשנים תשי"ד-תשכ"א (1954-1961) שופץ הבניין והורחב, ומאז הוא משמש כבית הכנסת המרכזי בגדרה, ומתקיימים בו חוגים ופעילויות תרבות תורניות. שיחזור ושיפוץ נוסף נעשו בשנים תשס"ד-תשס"ו (2004-2006).

Yeshurun ​​Synagogue
The Yeshurun ​​Synagogue was built in the style of European synagogues, in 1912, from the donation of Meir Genkin of Moscow. It was the first public building built in Gedera.
From the time the building was erected there were meetings of the community committee, it served as a building for public events and a school, and even served as a residence for the Gabbai and his family. During the First World War, in 1917, Jews who did not want to join the Turkish army were hiding in the roof of the building.
The building was renovated and expanded in 1954-1961, and since then it has served as the central synagogue in Gedera, and there are religious classes and cultural activities. Reconstruction and further renovations were done in 2004-2006.
