No updated information on their website, and it looks like it's closed up. Sad to see that there were no services for Shabbat or Yom Tov.

If you are planning visit in the Italian center in Jerusalem, go and see the synagogue. it's decoration is beautiful originally brought from Italy. Also on the entrance floor, there's a chamber with painted ceiling exactly like in the Vatican, really beautiful, worth visiting there. It's not a big place, but if you have time and near by, go there.

The synagogue and museum present Italian Jewish items that are quite amazing, beautiful and interesting. I only wish they had a coffee table book for sale, because you weren't allowed to take pictures.
