An architectural treasure, designed to look like a seashell.

Sometimes referred to as the Recanati Synagogue or the Seashell Synagogue, this synagogue is known for its unique appearance. Designed by architect Yitzchak Toledano, and named for Yehuda Leon Recanati, it was modeled to resemble the seashells on the shores of the Greek city of Thessaloniki, hometown to the Recanati family. The inside of the synagogue is as impressive as the outside, with stained glass windows, soft carpet, a monumental ark and seating that accommodates over 600 people. There are no internal pillars and the dome shape means that all guests and see and hear the service. It is affiliated with Greek Sephardic and Orthodox Judaism.
