The site of Ohel Moshe Synagogue, built by Russian Jews in1928, is the one of the only two Jewish synagogues of old Shanghai that still stand. It was a place for gathering and conducting religious rites by Jewish refugees in Shanghai during World War II. It was listed into the fourth batch of excellent historical buildings of Shanghai in 2004. Yitzhak Rabin, the former prime minister of Israel, left his words that “an unparalleled humanistic move of Shanghai people during the World War II” during his visit to the site in 1994. In March 2007, Hongkou District Government restored the synagogue based on the original drawings in the municipal archives. The site now has been restored to its original architectural style in 1928. The inner structure was also adjusted according to the drawings. The reproduction of the architectural drawings is now preserved on the first floor.
