King Louis XVIII authorized by ordinance of 29 June 1819 the Israelite Consistory of Paris to build a synagogue. It was inaugurated in 1822. Built according to the plans of the architect Sandrié de Jouy, it can accommodate several hundred faithful and has galleries for women. Very quickly anomalies were found in the construction, and in 1848, the building threatened to collapse. The police closed the synagogue in 1850, which was demolished. A new synagogue was rebuilt on site according to the plans of the architect Alexandre Thierry (1810-1890) thanks to the donations of Baron James de Rothschild. It was inaugurated on April 1, 1852. The rite is Alsatian. Famous organists: Marie-Louis Girod
