Built in 1856, it was designed by Yeoville Thomason. It replaced the Greek Revival, 1827 Severn Street Synagogue, which survives as a Masonic Hall, and was the fourth synagogue building to be erected in the city.

It features "a Norman-wheel window in a building design in red and yellow brick, which combined neo-classical, Romanesque, and Italianate details, and used a classical basilica plan, with a central Bimah".[1]

The stained glass windows were commissioned from Hardman Studios in 1956-1963, in a process overseen by the former chairman of the Synagogue's council, Joseph Cohen.[2]
