The Slat Al Kabira (בית כנסת הגדול, Great Synagogue) in Benghazi (בנג'זי, بنغازي), Libya (לוב, ليبيا).
This synagogue is today a Coptic Church. The synagogue had daily minyanim. The first floor was used for a minyan for young people, led by Rabbi Rahmin Madar (that later become the Chief Rabbi of Benghazi). The synagoge was used also as a Yeshiva of Rabbis and a couple of Mekoubalim (Rav Eliahu Labi, Rav Khmmus El Fellah).
In about 1964, the Talmud Torah ceased to be its own building and classes were moved into this building.
