בית הכנסת הגדול

[תמונה: בית הכנסת הגדול]

זה המבנה הראשון שיועד להיות בית כנסת במושבה. עד לבנייתו היה הציבור מתכנס במקומות שונים בישוב. בשנות ה-20 היו האראשונים מתכנסים בצריפו של פטרוז’נסקי (הבית הראשון בצידו המזרחי של רחוב אחוזה). אחר-כך הועידו חדר בבית העם ובחגים התכנסו באולם שבו. בשנת תרצ"ט-1939 נחנך בנין בית הכנסת והוא משמש את הקהילה עד ימינו. בשנות ה-70 בוצעו במבנה מספר שינויים וחזיתו צופתה שיש.

The Great Synagogue

[Image: Great Synagogue]

This is the first building to be a synagogue in the colony. Until its construction, the public would gather at various places in the community. In the 1920s, the founders would gather in Petrozansky’s hut (the first house on the east side of Ahuza Street). Then they had a room in the People’s house, and on holidays they congregated in his hall. In 1939 the synagogue building was inaugurated and is used by the community to this day. In the 1970s, a number of changes were made to the structure and its facade was covered with marble.
