Originally built in 1492, when the Jews were expelled from Spain, the current building dates from the turn of the 19th century and the 20th century. It is located in the mellah (Jewish quarter) of the medina of Marrakech and consists of a group of buildings surrounding a large well-maintained central patio. The Jews of Marrakech consider it to be the oldest synagogue in the city. Its name means "synagogue of dissidents". The synagogue is currently occupied by a Muslim family, which takes care of it .
The east side was renovated after the 1950s, with the addition of a wing for women (ezrat nashim), which is unique in Morocco where tradition dictates that women stay in a separate room at the entrance of the synagogue. The original wooden chest has been replaced by a marble chest, which is located next to the eastern wall. Notes drawn in the 1950s by architect Yaacov Finkerfeld demonstrate that the space mentioned above did not exist for women and that the interior was divided into two naves by four columns. The walls are painted. On the upper floor, there is a yeshiva.
