Ohel David Synagogue 150

The Magen David Synagogue, which was built by David Sassoon and his family in Byculla, Bombay (now Mumbai), India, celebrated its 150th anniversary. It was a momentous occasion, with dignitaries from around the world who were present for the ceremonies.

We are presenting (below) some of the addresses made on that night, as well as historical facts and photographs of the occasion.
