Designed by Thomas Rowe, this building, the headquarters of the Jewish faith, was consecrated in 1878. The Great Synagogue features columns, ornate wrought-iron gates, a paneled ceiling covered with gold leaf stars, and other elaborate decorations inspired by synagogues built in London and Liverpool. There is also a museum that runs two or three exhibitions a year on different aspects of Jewish life and heritage. Visit website for more details.
