After churches, synagogues are my favorite type of sacral buildings I particularly like the Temple Emmanuel in Manhattan.

Of course, Jehu means "Jew" in Persian and "-bare" is a very Persian suffix which means "the place of", like Zanzibar: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zanzibar Arabs called this town "al-Yahudiyeh", Yahud also means "Jew" in Arabic.
