Construction of the Great Synagogue of Petah Tikva began in 1885 with a contribution from the Hovevei Zion movement. Edmond James de Rothschild donated the money needed to complete the building, which includes a main sanctuary with overlooking women's section, as well as two smaller adjoining prayer rooms, and another room used for studying and praying.
The official nusach of the prayer is Nusach Ashkenaz, but throughout the day, the synagogue facilities act as a shtiebel with multiple parallel prayer sessions where the nusach is decided by the Hazzan.
In the late 2000s, the synagogue was the target of vandals who spray-painted swastikas and other Nazi-themed words on the building and inside on multiple events.

A historic synagogue in the city center, Petach Tikva. On weekdays, there are a few hot-water buildings that can be organized by 10 a.m., rounds in the main hall and the 3 lateral halls. There are several afternoon and early-sunset guides. There are a few of the buildings of Maariv in the stars. What's convenient is that the synagogue is in the center of the city and that there are many buildings in the different halls. What's uncomfortable is that in the daytime parking is hard.
