Facts

  • The synagogue survived the 1906 Great Earthquake without significant damage and was saved from the ensuing massive fires which had been stopped only 6 blocks to the east.
  • Because it was one of few buildings with sufficient space left standing after the 1906 earthquake, the synagogue was used to house the city's Superior Courts for two years following the disaster.
  • A founding session of the United Nations was held here in 1945.
