The Synagogue of Bordeaux  - France 

In passing from "Jews" to "Israelites", they are no longer a foreign nation in a welcoming land but a religious entity in their own country. monumental synagogues are built. By choosing majestic buildings as their place of worship, the Israelites reaffirm their integration into the society in which they are fully invested, both economically and culturally. The synagogue is no longer just a place of prayer but the demonstration of an unwavering union that we notice in the name of the temples: all bear the name of the street where they are located. The construction of synagogues is a most eloquent message which illustrates a desire to settle permanently in France.
