One of the benefits of living in Geneva is walking by this beauty every day.
The Beth Yaakov Synagogue, also known as the Grande Synagogue, is a registered historic monument in Switzerland thanks to its beautiful architecture. The synagogue is designed by Jean Henri Bachofen in a Byzantine-Moorish style and built between 1858 and 1859. Before that, non-Protestant buildings were not allowed within city limits. Glad they changed their mind on that one!
