בית הכנסת
The Synagogue

בניין בית הכנסת תוכנן בתקופתו של קרל נטר, אך הוקם רק בשנים 1894-1895.
קומתו הראשונה נועדה לבית כנסת וספרייה מרכזית, והשנייה - לחדרי לימוד. חזית בית הכנסת פונה צפונה ונמצאת בקו ישר עם "שער ירושלים" ושדרת הדקלים המוליכה אליו.
מעל משקוף הכניסה, לוח שיש משולש מעוטר, וחרותים בו מחרשה ואשכול ענבים. כאשר שופץ המבנה ב-1970, שומרו תקרת העץ המקורית המעוטרת, רצפת השיש והחלונות הצבעוניים של בית הכנסת.

The Synagogue
The synagogue building was designed in the time of Carl Netter, but was built only in the years 1894-1895.
Its first floor is intended for a synagogue and a central library, and the second - for study rooms. The front of the synagogue faces north and is in a straight line with the "Jerusalem Gate" and the Palm Avenue leading to it.
Above the entrance lintel, a decorated triangular marble slab, engraved with a plow and a cluster of grapes. When the building was renovated in 1970, the original ornate wooden ceiling, marble floor and stained glass windows of the synagogue were preserved.
