Ramot, 5 Shirat Hayam st.

About the project

In 1984, the Jerusalem Foundation supported the completion of a partially built complex of three adjacent religious structures in the Ramot Polin section of Ramot: an Ashkenazi synagogue, a Sephardi synagogue and a mikveh (ritual bath.) The buildings were designed by architect Haim Hafetz using his “domecrete” patent, in which concrete is cast over a balloon mold, creating interior spaces in which walls flow into ceiling, creating a feeling of unity and closeness. The identical synagogues seat 140 and feature women’s’ galleries and central areas for Torah reading.
