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

So this is a big squarish building that looks very solid from the outside. Inside it reminded me of a place to worship - They have stained glass windows and places to sit. It's a very calming atmosphere.

Sorry state of affairs to find the Great Synagogue in the heart of Tel Aviv in such neglect. It should shine, but instead looks like an impenetrable dirty fortress. Could be something, and clearly once was. Wish it could be restored.

Not one of the best attraction in Tel Aviv, but proximity of the the most important boulevard should have been attracted tourists in the area.

You cannot miss it on Allenby, being a former white, now quite dirty walled block. As a key religious monument, I find it interesting, but not from a sightseeing perspective. It is empty, as synagogues are and needs cleaning on the outside. Good place to...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
