English: The Synagoge Zürich Löwenstrasse is the oldest and largest synagogue in the Swiss municipality of Zürich. In 1884 built in the Moorish style architecture, it is the house of prayer and school house of Israelitische Cultusgemeinde Zürich (ICZ) which was founded in 1862. ICZ is a unified Jewish community having about 2,500 members, and thus the largest Jewish community in Switzerland, which since 2007 in the Canton of Zurich is recognized as a denomination, i.e. ICZ has the same legal state as the Christian denominations. The synagogue is a cultural heritage of regional importance in Switzerland.
