On the sign:
בית-הכנסת "תפארת-בנימין"
בשנת תרצ"א (1931) תרמה גב’ מלכה ישראלית, את המגרש בן שני דונם לצורך בית-כנסת לתושבי המושבה. לכך היא הוסיפה סכום כסף נכבד שאיפשר את תחילת הבניה. שכן, עד שהוקם בית-הכנסת התפללו התושבים בבית משפחת שלזינגר.
גב’ אלקה יהלום וחבר ועד המושבה, שמואל גלילי, התרימו את כל משפחות המושבה לצורך הבנייה. כולם תרמו, מי כספים, מי עבודה, ומי אביזרים לבית-הכנסת.
עזרת הנשים שימשה כגן לילדי המושבה, עד לשנת תרצ"ח (1938). בתקופה המנדטורית, הכוך מתחת גרם המדרגות לעזרת הנשים שימש כסליק לנשק של ארגון ה"הגנה".
הגבאי הראשון והפעיל המרכזי היה בנימין וולפסון, שעל שמו נקרא בית-הכנסת.
היה זה בית-הכנסת הראשון בכפר-גנים.

Translation of the text on the sign:

Tiferet Binyamin Synagogue
In 1931, Ms. Malka Israeli donated the two-dunam plot of land for a synagogue to the residents of the colony. To this she added a considerable sum of money that enabled the beginning of construction. For, until the synagogue was established, the residents prayed in the Schlesinger family home.
Ms. Elka Yahalom and a member of the Moshava committee, Shmuel Galili, raised all the families of the Moshava for the purpose of construction. Everyone donated, some money, some work, and some synagogue accessories.
The Women’s sectuib served as a kindergarten for the children of the colony, until 1938. During the Mandatory period, the niche under the staircase for the women’s section served as a slick for the Haganah’s weapons.
The first Gabay and the main activist was Benjamin Wolfson, after whom the synagogue is named.
It was the first synagogue in Kfar Ganim.
