The Beit Yaakov Synagogue, in memory of Jacob James Rothschild, the father of Baron Rothschild, was inaugurated in Nissan, 1898, with the financial assistance of Baron Edmund Benjamin Rothschild.
Construction of the synagogue began in 1889 and was made possible with the donation of donor Isaac Matokatz. The building was designed in a basilica model by architects brought from abroad by Baron Rothschild. The structural engineer was Daniel Lifshitz.
There are three sun clocks prepared by the Jerusalem watchmaker, Rabbi Moshe Shapiro.
Over the years, the synagogue has held special prayers during times of trouble and holiday.
In this synagogue a prayer for the peace of the state was to be said for the first time. The prayer was composed by Rabbi Reuven Katz, the citys rabbi, and said the following day of the UN Resolution on November 29, 1947, about the establishment of the State of Israel.
