Built in 1982, this gigantic prayer hall lives up to its name. The doors leading into the marble floored and chandelier lined foyer are designed to replicate the grand entrance to the first and second Temples. Enjoy the beauty of the two storey stained glass windows and plush seating. The services are traditional as women sit on the second floor balcony. The lobby contains a collection of mezuzahs (small rectangle box that is affixed to the doorposts of Jewish homes) from around the world. Shabbat services are Friday evening and Saturday morning.
