SHAAR HASHAMAIM (Gate of Heaven) SYNAGOGUE, Thane
At the end of the 19th century, the Jewish community of Thane grew rapidly and the need arose to build a Synagogue for its members. The funds for the construction of the building were raised voluntarily. The cornerstone was laid on March 26, 1878, and the Synagogue building was inaugurated on the Hanukkah festival, December 29, 1879.
In 1926, the Mikveh was installed, thanks to the donation of Isaac Ezekiel Haeem. In 2,001, the structure was renovated and expanded, under the guidance and supervision of the community leaders.
Over the years, the Synagogue building underwent a series of renovations, the most important of which was in the first decade of the 21st century, by adding two floors above the old building. Work began on January 1, 2008, and the inauguration of the new addition, which changed the physical appearance of the building, took place on December 13, 2009.
In addition to the daily prayers, Holy Days and community celebrations that take place in the Synagogue throughout the year, there is also a Zionist association in Thane, a youth club and a welfare organization.
