|Slat Abn Shaif Synagogue|
During the Ottoman rule, the building was expanded and became a place of pilgrimage and study of the Zohar. The synagogue was burned in 1868 by disgruntled Muslims of his growing fame and rebuilt in 1870 by the Pasha of Tripoli by order of the Ottoman sultan. Another fire, this time accidentally, destroyed the synagogue in 1912, when Tripoli has recently been under Italian rule. It was rebuilt shortly afterwards. A synagogue in Benghazi was built on the same model.
