The Italian synagogue is a hidden gem in the heart of Jerusalem. It is a synagogue that has been completely transported from Italy to the first floor of the building where it is currently located. The fee to visit isn't much and you are provided with a printed info sheet describing the main features. It is truly beautiful - and... More

The museum houses a most beautiful collection of Italian judaica, mostly from the Baroque period, including exquisite embroidery. illuminated ketubot, magnificent silver objects, and ornemental wooden carving. The intimate 18th-century synagogue, transported form Italy and reassembled, displays a remarkably beautiful Torah Ark.

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. Among the items were several Ketubahs from the 1700s and a very old circumcision kit (made me cross my legs). If you are anywhere in the vicinity,... More
