The Ohel Jakob Synagogue was built between 2004 and 2006 for the Jewish community in Munich to serve as the main synagogue there. The building is a part of the Jewish Museum Munich and a community center. It was built quite close to Munich’s original main synagogue which was destroyed by Nazis in June 1938 under the pretext of rioting. The synagogue stands today as a reminder of the dark past and as a memorial to more than 4000 Jews of Munich who were killed during the Holocaust.
