The Synagogue dates back to the Maan dynasty.

Built in the 17th Century it was finally sold in 1900 to Mansour Kobeh and Daoud Raad Chamoun.

The deed of sale, which was ratified by Beirut's Grand Rabbi, still exists in the archives of the Municipal Council.

Restored in a somewhat unorthodox manner with the addition of a stylized mandaloun unusual to see on a religious edifice, it now belongs to the General Directorate of Antiquities.

Above the Synagogue to the left, is a large building once one of the first Catholic schools in the area run by the sisters of the Jesuit Lazarist order.
