The synagogue was designed by the architect Yehuda Magidovitch, and its dome by engineer Arpad Gut. In 1925, architect Dov Hershkowitz joined the design. The building was renovated in 1969 by Arieh El-Hanani, a renovation in which the arches surrounding the building were added to the building and in fact hide its original shape.
