סמל העיר תל אביב
עיריית תל אביב יפו

בבית הכנסת הזה, שימשו המרתף ועליית הגג
מחבוא נשק
של לח"י.
הבריטים גילו אותו בעת העוצר הגדול,
ב-ג’ באב תש"ו (31.7.1946) והנשק הוחרם.

סמל העיר תל אביב
סמל הלח"י

The Lehi used the basement and attic of this synagogue as a secret arms cache.
It was discovered by the British during the "great curfew" imposed in July 1946, and the weapons were confiscated.
