Synagogue of the Israelite Congregation - Buenos Aires
Built at the end of the 19th Century, the Synagogue of the Israelite Congregation (AKA Libertad Temple) was the firs synagogue of Buenos Aires, who was considerably expanded to the current building in the 1930s due to the high number of jewish immigrants entering into the city. Appart from keeping the original details on its frontis, this temple is specially rich in its interiors, with a mix of styles (predominantly Neo-Romanesque) who can be clearly see on its columns, chandeliers, and the large amount of Stars of David on its vitraux, lamps and even the wooden benchs. This synagogue was recently visited by Angela Merkel on her trip to the country.
Nowadays one of the most important synagogues of Argentina, the Temple of Paso is of the many jewish temples of the Balvanera neighorhood, where a large portion of the argentine jewish community lives. Unlike the other synagogues, the Temple of Paso stands out thanks to the open main entrance who’s connected to the street and also because of the total height that, if you also count the twin underground Hall, it manages to have almost 10 floors.
