Jews of Middle Eastern or Spanish origin attend this newly built Orthodox synagogue. There are four separate prayer rooms each slightly different from the another. The design of the main prayer hall is typical of Sephardic culture. The central platform is surrounded by a bronze metal encasing and decorated with leaves. The basic prayers are similar to that of Ashkenazi Jews (of European descent) but the melodies are distinct and beautiful. This prayer environment is a definite must for those seeking to understand the diverse world of Jewish cultures.
