Interesting fact 

Another rather unique and relatively unknown feature of Robinson Place is that it is situated on the erstwhile gardens of the Ohel Leah Synagogue and the Jewish Community Centre. 

Commissioned and built by the renowned Sassoon family in the early 20th century, the magnificent synagogue, which stands intact until today, was designed by renowned Hong Kong architectural firm, Leigh & Orange.  An exponent of colonial and baroque styles of architecture, it features a white plastered brick exterior flanked by two tall towers. 

The Ohel Leah synagogue is one of the few synagogues, constructed in the early twentieth century, in Asia that is still being used for the reason it was established. 

The synagogue complex also hosts a large new Jewish Community Centre. Another famed Hong Kong Jewish clan, the Kadoorie family, founded this centre and it currently features a Jewish day school, library, conference rooms, an Olympic size indoor pool and baby pool, a fitness facility, meat and dairy kosher restaurants and kosher food supermarket. As a result, security at Robinson Place meets the highest standards.
