The Synagogue Ohel Jakob by night
Interior of the Synagogue
Synagogue Ohel Jakob
The new Jewish Main Synagogue Ohel Jakob was inaugurated in 2006. This striking place of worship is located on the spacious Jakobsplatz, facing east. Its mighty base made of sandstone blocks is reminiscent of the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. A glass cube made of steel and glass rises above it. The main six metre high portal features the first letters of the Hebrew alphabet, representing the Ten Commandments. Contrary to the design of many Christian churches, it is not the main entrance to the interior, but it can be seen as part of a guided tour through the Gang der Erinnerung (Path of Memory). The names of 4,500 Munich Jews who were deported and murdered during the National Socialist era are inscribed on backlit glass plates. A corridor leads underground from the Jewish Community Centre into the Synagogue‘s prayer room. This room is decorated with cedar wood from Lebanon and light Meleke stone. The synagogue has 500 seats, and is one of the largest synagogues in Europe.
