Englander interprets the phrase "Men of the Great Synagogue" as "leaders of the Community of Greatness" (Keneset ha-Gedolah), i.e., heads of the Jewish community.

The synagogue is the center of the Jewish religious community: a place of prayer, study and education, social and charitable work, as well as a social center.. What's in a Name?
