Marot Hasulam Synagogue
The Marot HaSulam Synagogue is a beautiful and unique synagogue located in the heart of Neve Tzedek, the historical neighborhood established in 1887 as the first of the new city of Tel Aviv. Marot HaSulam was the first synagogue in Tel Aviv built in the beginning of the twentieth century in the tradition of the building and decorative style of Eastern Europe. Several special elements turned Marot HaSulam into a unique building with great historical value. Unfortunately, the building deteriorated over the years and the number of worshippers dwindled. In the end it was deserted completely. A number of years ago, there was a fire that engulfed the Synagogue in flames, destroying the entire interior. Today, the City of Tel Aviv is asking, with the support of the residents, to restore the building and turn it into a museum and synagogue. The many visitors who come to see Neve Tzedek will be able to visit the synagogue.
