GREAT SYNAGOGUE WAGENSTRAAT
As the number of Jews who settled in the area behind the Spui grew, the Jewish character of ‘De Buurt’ became more pronounced. The synagogue on the Voldersgracht became too small and the community decided to build a large formal one. This became the neo-classical ‘Great Synagogue’ on the Wagenstraat. This buiding by the local architect Arend Roodenburg was consecrated in 1844.
