  • Magen Aboth Synagogue is really nice place. We wonder after hearing the history of it. This is related to jews people.

  • Of much heritage value the long history of Magen Aboth Synagogue related to the Jews were to be to be explored fully. It was closed often and needed to check before visiting.

  • So the story goes as follows.... Some Bene Israeli Jews landed on the Konkan coast in my town and settled here. One of them was Ali. With his growing trade he had bought large estates of land and converted them into garden. So people started calling the area as Ali chi Bagh...which later formalised as 'ALIBAG'
  • There was once a large Jewish community in Alibag; most of them were oil pressers and sellers. Bet El Synagogue is the only one in Alibag. Viceroy Lord Curzon (1899-1905) visited this synagogue. This place had been place of worship for the Jewish community; it was where community centre, Konkan development programmes and village meetings were held. The synagogue is a heritage property with a unique style and is a well-known Indian Jewish and Konkan tourist point.
