Maghain Aboth Synagogue, Singapore

2.6
Built in 1878, this is Southeast Asia’s oldest surviving synagogue. Maghain Aboth Synagogue - which translates to “Shield of our Fathers” - is established as Southeast Asia’s oldest surviving synagogue, and visits are by appointment only. The 2-storey Jewish house of worship is easily distinguished from its neighbours by the three blue Stars of David emblazoned on the cream-coloured façade, along with its name in Hebrew. Unlike other places of worship, the prayer hall does not bear any images of gods or prophets, as this is forbidden in Judaism. A tour of the interior reveals a mix of neoclassical and colonial architecture.

  • We came without an early coordination. Accepted a beautiful face and invited to the kiddush that there was actually a lunch after the end of prayer. Thank you very much.

  • As synagogue opinion is divided, is certainly lovely. Has to be opened, Singapore has to publish religious institutions. But I had a different impression here. It is a pity.
