ACO Great Synagogue

Great Synagogue

The Great Synagogue was an ancient Egyptian synagogue located in the Jewish quarter of Alexandria, Egypt.

Around 48 BCE, the Medjay Bayek of Siwa visited the synagogue, finding one of the Papyrus Puzzles within.[1]

In 66 CE, the synagogue was destroyed when the Jews of Alexandria, inspired by the Revolt in Judea, rebelled against the Romans.[2]

Trivia

  • The Great Synagogue anachronistically features a Star of David. The star appeared centuries after the Ptolemaic era.[3]
