Conçue dans un style néo-byzantin, elle a été commencée en 1867 et inaugurée en 1874 . Le 21 avril 1890, Alfred Dreyfus s'y est marié avec Lucie Hadamard. Pendant l'Occupation allemande, dans la nuit du 2 au 3 octobre 1941, une bombe explosa dans la grande synagogue lors d'une nuit d'attentats touchant plusieurs synagogues parisiennes. Après la guerre, la synagogue entama une rénovation qui n'est achevée qu'en 1967. Cette synagogue, propriété de la ville de Paris, fait l’objet d’un classement au titre des monuments historiques depuis le 11 décembre 1987.
The instrument was built by Merklin, circa 1875. It was at this time that the organ was introduced into the French Hebrew cult. It was imported from the Germanic countries where it was then common to use the organ for the Hebrew liturgy. Around 1960, Gutschenritter replaced two stops and added a Plein jeu IV to the Great. Since then, the instrument has only had some maintenance works by Jean-Marc Cicchero, making this organ a quasi-authentic instrument. Nowadays, it serves mainly for the liturgy of weddings.
