“Beautiful Synagogue, fantastic concert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

A beautiful, active synagogue. Did get here for Shabbat, but did catch a concert at night. A string quintet, from the Czech symphony orchestra, with a soprano soloist performed classical, show, and Jewish music for 1 hour. Great acoustics, with sweet music. Catch it if you can.

We were fortunate to attend a charity musical concert in this synagogue. The acoustics and beautiful decorations enhance the playing and the atmosphere.

Even if you are not Jewish, you can go for services. They are very nice and you see inside the synagogue for free

“Worth a visit”

The synagogue itself is beautiful but the best part are the twice weekly concerts they have. The acoustics are impressive as were the musicians.

“Music in the Synagogue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We attended a concert advertised as "Gershwin in the Synagogue. The building itself is beautiful and interesting. The musicians were fine. The programme was only very partly Gershwin.
