בית הכנסת "אלבום"
בית הכנסת התימני "אלבום" נבנה במהלך שנות החמישים של המאה העשרים על ידי משפחתו של יחיאל קרוואני.
בית הכנסת נקרא כך על שם ספר התורה "אלבום" המקודש ליהודי תימן.
על פי המסורת, ספר התורה "אלבום" נכתב לפני מאות שנים בתימן, על ידי איש צדיק אשר כתב אותו בקדושה ובטהרה יוצאות דופן. בגלל קדושתו של הספר התפתחה מסורת ארוכת שנים של עלייה לרגל לבית הכנסת בעיר שאחידייה, שבו שכן ספר התורה.

ספר התורה הובא לראש העין יחד עם העולים במסגרת המבצע "על כנפי נשרים"

שמו של הספר המקודש יצא למרחוק. תושבים מרחבי הארץ, תימנים ולא תימנים, דתיים ולא דתיים, נוהגים לפקוד את בית הכנסת הזה לתפילה, לבקשת תחנונים והבעת משאלות.

Al-boom "Synagogue"
The Yemenite synagogue "Al-boom" was built during the fifties of the twentieth century by the family of Yechiel Karwani.
The synagogue is named after the Torah scroll "Al-boom" dedicated to Yemenite Jews.
According to tradition, the Torah scroll "Al-boom" was written hundreds of years ago in Yemen, by a righteous man who wrote it with extraordinary holiness and purity. Because of the sanctity of the book, a long tradition of pilgrimage to the synagogue in the city of Shahidiyah, where the Torah scroll was housed, developed.

The Torah scroll was brought to Rosh HaAyin together with the immigrants as part of the operation "On the Wings of Eagles"

The name of the sacred book went far and wide. Residents from all over the country, Yemenis and non-Yemenis, religious and non-religious, usually visit this synagogue for prayer, begging and making wishes.
