The Jewish community that emigrated from Eastern Europe and the Middle East at the beginning of the 20th century found refuge in the old neighborhood of La Merced. The community organized and by 1922 created the Nidje Israel Charitable Organization in a room next to the Jardín de La Santísima. In 1937, the society bought two houses on Justo Sierra Street, at numbers 71 and 73. By 1941, the Nidje Israel Synagogue opened its doors to a temple, prayer area, study area, and social activities and meeting rooms. The current restoration began in 2008 and on December 13, 2009 it was re-opened as a cultural center.
