בית-הכנסת הגדול
בית הכנסת "בית יעקב", לזכרו של יעקב ג’יימס רוטשילד, אבי הברון רוטשילד, נחנך בניסן תרנ"ח (1898), בעזרתו הכספית של הברון אדמונד בנימין רוטשילד.
בנייתו של בית הכנסת החלה בשנת תרמ"ט (1889) והתאפשרה בעזרת תרומת הנדבן אייזיק מטוקאץ. המבנה תוכנן בדגם של בזיליקה על ידי אדריכלים שהובאו מחו"ל על ידי הברון רוטשילד. מהנדס המבנה היה דניאל ליפשיץ.
בקיר הכניסה מוצבים שלושה שעוני שמש שהוכנו על ידי השען הירושלמי, ר’ משה שפירא.
במשך השנים קיימו בבית הכנסת תפילות מיוחדות בעת צרה ובימי חג.
בבית כנסת זה נאמרה לראשונה תפילה לשלום המדינה שעתידה לקום. התפילה חוברה על ידי הרב ראובן כץ זצ"ל, רב העיר, ונאמרה למחרת החלטת האו"ם, ב-כ"ט בנובמבר 1947, על הקמת מדינת ישראל.

The Great Synagogue
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 city’s rabbi, and said the following day of the UN Resolution on November 29, 1947, about the establishment of the State of Israel.
