Designed in 1872 by the architect Marcellin-Emmanuel Varcollier, la Synagogue des Tournelles is the second largest synagogue in Paris. It serves the Ashkenazi Jewish community of Paris, many of whom are originally from central and eastern Europe. The architecture, perhaps considered neo-Romanesque, is similar to that of la Grande Synagogue de la Victoire (the largest synagogue in Paris) in the 9th arrondissement. It is named after the street it is on, rue des Tournelles, in the Marais district, right behind Place des Vosges.
