Ohel Leah Synagogue 猶太教莉亞堂 (c. 1902), Hong Kong, China 🇭🇰

Designed by Leigh & Orange Architects (groundbreaking in 1901, completed in 1902), Ohel Leah Synagogue 猶太教莉亞堂 is Hong Kong’s oldest and largest synagogue.

During the dark days of the Japanese occupation in World War II, the synagogue faced desecration, serving as a stable for the Japanese army. Over the years, Ohel Leah has undergone meticulous restoration, now hosting Sephardic-style prayer services.

Special thanks to JCC Hong Kong for allowing access.
