In 1877, the architect Stanislas Ferrand entrusted the construction of the synagogue to Albert Philippe Le Roy de Bonneville (1849-1913) who was responsible for the details and interior ornamentation. In Romano-Byzantine style, the synagogue can accommodate 900 people, 600 men on the ground floor and 300 women in the galleries. In 1905, during the law of separation of church and state,the synagogue was given by the Sephardic community to the consistory. Currently, it mainly brings together Jews from the Oranese region.
