MAGEN HASSIDIM (Shield of the Pious) SYNAGOGUE,
Differences of opinion among Tipheret Israel community members, as well as the need for a larger hall for the growing congregation, led in 1904, to the establishment of another nearby Bene Israel Prayer Hall, which was named in 1914, the “Jacob Circle Jewish New Prayer Hall”. The new premise was popularly known as “Dandoolkar’s Prayer Hall”, who had a major role in the founding of the New Prayer Hall.
Roughly, almost thirty years later, a plot of land was acquired for the purpose of building a new edifice for the Synagogue named “Magen Hassidim”. Designs for the building was prepared by architect Samson A. Elijah. A plaque commemorating the laying the corner stone of the building says: "This stone was laid by Mrs. Sarabai Solomon Aaron Bhonkar on 17th November1929." The Synagogue was consecrated on the 29th of March 1931.
Other structures within the Magen Hassidim Synagogue compound are: The Mikva (ritual bath), the Rebecca Samuel Pavilion, the Solomon and Sarah Hall and Sassoon Hall.
