בית הכנסת המרכזי - מגדיאל

בס"ד
סמל מגדיאל

ביום י"ב מנחם-אב שנת תרפ"ד אוגוסט 1924, עלו המתיישבים הראשונים על הקרקע במקום זה. שתים עשרה משפחות מפולין, אנשי המעמד הבינוני, שרכשו את האדמה מחברת "הכשרת הישוב", אליהם הצטרפו מתיישבים חלוצים מליטא, גרמניה ובגדד.
המתיישבים בנו צריפים ואוהלים שהיו נתונים לחסדי שמים, גשמים בחורף וחמסין בקיץ. מים לשתיה הובאו בחביות מכפר מלל.
בית כנסת זה נבנה כמבנה רב תכליתי בשנת תר"ץ לפ"ק, שנת 1930: כבית תפילה, מרכז בטחוני ומקום מסתור בשעת חרום. המבנה נבנה מלבני בטון שהוכנו במקום, קירות עבים עם חרכי ירי במעקה הגג.
בית הכנסת שימש כמרכז החיים הדתיים והחברתיים של המושבה. הוא היה משכן לועד המקומי ולאחר מכן מועצה מקומית, תחנת נוטרים (גפירים) ותחנת איתות וקשר על הגג.

The sign shape is square but its head is designed according to the silhouette of the old building of the Gymnasia Herzliya, which serves as a logo of the Council for the Preservation of Heritage Sites in Israel

The Central Synagogue - Magdiel

Magdial Emblem

On the twelfth day of Menachem-Av, August 1924, the first settlers came to the ground here. Twelve middle-class families from Poland who purchased the land from the "Israel Land Development" company, joined by pioneers from Lithuania, Germany and Baghdad.
The settlers built barracks and tents that were at the mercy of the sky, rainfall in winter and summer in the summer. Drinking water was brought in barrels from Kfar Malal.
This synagogue was built as a multifunctional building in the year 1930, as a prayer house, a security center and an emergency hiding place. The building was built of concrete bricks that were prepared on the site, thick walls with firing holes in the roof railing.
The synagogue served as the center of religious and social life of the colony. It was a resident of the local committee and then a local council, a notary station (gaffirs) and a signal and communication station on the roof.
