According to legend, the Ben Ezra Synagogue stands on the spot where the pharaoh’s daughter found baby Moses floating down the Nile. The synagogue was fully restored from its original 9th century condition in 1892 and has since become one of the most-visited Jewish sites in Cairo as a Jewish heritage library. In addition to standing as a historical monument, Ben Ezra Synagogue also housed a number important documents discovered in 1896, which provided deep insights into the social, economic and political Jewish history in Cairo.
