The New Synagogue Berlin in Oranienburger Straße was opened in 1866 and was once one of the most famous Jewish places of worship in Germany. It was not only a newly constructed, magnificent building, but also a place for new rituals: an organ, a mixed choir, a prayer book in German, and the world's first female rabbi (who was ordained in 1935). Today, one of the remaining rooms is used as a synagogue, and here too the congregation is introducing innovations.
