The opening of the church was delayed because of destruction caused by vandals. These were Romanian nationalists, who violently protested Jews. It went through a serious renovation and then opened to the public. The first stone was laid in 1965. To the opening ceremony many important people came, members of the Founders Association, the Jews of Bucharest, as well as many Christian guests. In this ceremony, large donations were collected, used to pay the loan for the building of the synagogue, and continuing construction work.
Today, the building is still impressive and has a prominent presence. It has an old and ancient feeling to it, and it blends in well with the different buildings of the area. It is considered a Jewish historical site, an exact replica of the Tempelgasse synagogue in Vienna. Like it, it was also built by two Viennese architects.
The Choral Temple has two upper floors where the choir and organ are located. At the time, bringing the organ to the synagogue made many of the community upset, however, the organ remained.
During protests in Bucharest in 1941, the synagogue was severely damaged. A harsh and cruel massacre was carried out against the worshipers who were present at the time. After World War II, the synagogue was renovated with the help of donations from organizations. In the street in front of the synagogue is a statue of a Menorah in memory of the victims of the Holocaust.
