On the sign:
בית כנסת מוריה הוקם בשנת תרצ"ד (1934) והיה לבית הכנסת הראשון ברעננה
מגרש בית הכנסת נתרם על ידי מנחם (מקס) ופיגה ברוין אשר ביקשו לייחד מקום לבית כנסת בצד בית ספר ממלכתי דתי. בארון הקודש של בית הכנסת נמצא, גם כיום, ספר תורה אשר נתרם על ידם.

בית ספר ממ"ד יבנה שכן בשנות השלושים, במבנה בית הכנסת עצמו, עד להקמת מבנה בית הספר והעתקתו למיקומו הנוכחי השוכן בסמוך לבית הכנסת. בית כנסת מוריה מהווה, מיום הקמתו ועד היום, מרכז קהילתי שוקק חיים לתפילות, שיעורי תורה, כולל ופעילויות קהילתיות מגוונות.
הן בשל היותו הראשון בעיר והן בשל מאפייניו החזותיים ובמיוחד בשל חזיתו הייחודית הבנויה קיר אבן מיוחד ביופיו, הוכרז בית כנסת מוריה כמבנה לשימור בעיר רעננה.

בשנת תשע"ו (2016) שופץ מבנה בית הכנסת תוך שמירה על ייחודו כמבנה לשימור.

Translation of the text on the sign:

Moriah Synagogue was established in 1934 and became the first synagogue in Raanana
The synagogue field was donated by Menachem (Max) and Figa Brown who wanted to set aside a place for a synagogue next to a state religious school. In the ark of the synagogue is, even today, a Torah scroll donated by them.

Yavneh State Religious School was located in the 1930s, in the synagogue building itself, until the construction of the school building and its relocation to its current location near the synagogue. Moriah Synagogue has been, from its inception until today, a vibrant community center for prayers, Torah lessons, Kollel and diverse community activities.

Both due to being the first in the city and due to its visual characteristics and especially due to its unique façade built of a stone wall special in its beauty, the Moriah Synagogue was declared a building for preservation in the city of Raanana.

In 2016, the synagogue building was renovated while maintaining its uniqueness as a building for preservation.
