The edifice is important for its architectural, town-planning and memorial value, as it intrinsically contributes to the spatial definition of the historic area of Targul Cucului, a former Jewish quarter. The building is a conspicuous element of the constructed frame of the city of Iasi and, at the same time, represents a valuable element of the Jewish cultural heritage.
