Great Synagogue of Rome – Tempio Maggiore di Roma, Italy

Great Synagogue of Rome – Tempio Maggiore di Roma

The Synagogue was constructed following the unification of Italy in 1870. Victor Emmanuel II granted the Jews citizenship and dismantled the Ghetto. The old Synagogue was demolished and the new building was placed along the banks of the River Tiber facing towards where the old ghetto had previously stood, in 1901 -1904. Rome is filled with many beautiful buildings and this synagogue is no exception. The aluminium square dome is easily recognisable and is the only square dome in Rome. In 2004 it celebrated its centenary. It serves as a cultural centre for the Jewish community in Rome and also houses the Jewish Museum.
