The Great Synagogue
The cornerstone of the synagogue was laid in 1944, the synagogue was inaugurated in 1946. The living spirit in its establishment was Ben Zion Shenkar, chairman of the Agrobank neighborhood committee, who dedicated the synagogue in memory of his father Chaim Shenkar (brother of Lodzia factory owner Arie Shenkar) The members of the Shenkar family were descendants of a Hasidic rabbinical family.
Ben Zion Shenkar was murdered by British soldiers in the Agrobank neighborhood on Friday night, February 6, 1946.
The plot was donated by the managers of Agrobank, the two pairs of brothers from the Mirenburg and Yabetz houses, and the engineer Yehuda Lolko donated his working days.
Today, the offices of the "Holon Religious Council" are located in the office complex.
