The outside of the Great Synagogue looks like something nightmare vision of an architect obsessed with Brutalist architecture. There's no getting away with it, the facade of this building is ugly. The interior is sadly empty and has been since the 1970s when the area...More

The Great Synagogue of Tel Aviv is immense. Perhaps one of the greatest of Israel. The architecture is a mix of modern, Bauhaus and Art Deco. Exterior view, it seems simple and austere, once inside you will have a feeling appeasement. I suggest you come...More
