Maghen Abraham Synagogue

The Maghen Abraham Synagogue is one of the main synagogues in Lebanon.

Located in the Jewish district of Wadi Abu Jamil in Downtown Beirut. The Maghen Abraham Synagogue was destroyed during the course the Lebanese Civil War.

Maghen Abraham was constructed in the year 1925 and it was named after the son of Abraham Sassoon. Isaac Mann donated the land it currently occupies and Bindo Manham was the architect behind it while Ezra Benjamin and Joseph Balayla oversaw the construction.

The synagogue was abandoned in 1982 after the Israeli shelling smashed the building.

It wasn’t until 2009 that the renovations began on this synagogue and the restoration finished toward the end of 2010.
