So this is a big squarish building that looks very solid from the outside. Inside it reminded me of a place to worship - They have stained glass windows and places to sit. It's a very calming atmosphere.

For those looking for Jewish historical roots in the city, the Great Synagogue is a must. It still functions for the small, residual observant congregation that still lives in the city limits, but also has the feel of a museum. There is a person at...More

Sorry state of affairs to find the Great Synagogue in the heart of Tel Aviv in such neglect. It should shine, but instead looks like an impenetrable dirty fortress. Could be something, and clearly once was. Wish it could be restored.

Not one of the best attraction in Tel Aviv, but proximity of the the most important boulevard should have been attracted tourists in the area.

Perhaps my expectations were were low after reading the old reviews but I wanted to visit a synagogue and this was in the vicinity. It was eerie empty but really big. So you can spend some quiet moments if that is what you look for.
