We were in Verona for a few hours as part of a Riviera Travel tour to Lake Garda and surrounding area. Our visit to Verona was on a Sunday so the synagogue was closed. One feature that was pointed out to us by our guide was a brass plaque in the pavement marking the edge of the Jewish Ghetto from past times. What proved to be a sobering sign of the troubled times we live in however was that there were a few soldiers armed with automatic weapons standing in the street just outside the synagogue.

The sinagoga is beautiful inside and worth visiting. It is around the block from a brass marker in the ground marking the location of the former ghetto wall. It was a little creepy to me that the street with this marker was one of the high-fashion avenues of Verona. If you are Jewish, and will be in Verona Friday night, consider attending Friday night services. They were fairly short services and you will meet some interesting Jews from all over the world, including the very friendly Rabbi Labi. Services began at 7:30PM Sept 27, 2019, but I believe they begin earlier in the winter months. There is a sign outside the sinagoga with the hours of services. You will see soldiers guarding the front entrance of the sinagoga.

I visited the synagogue Friday morning, July 5th found it was guarded by armed army uniformed personnel. The synagogue was locked so I emailed the Rabbi (found the address on the outside wall) Rabbi replied within minutes and asked to meet him a few hours later. When I showed up at 11:30 I found a few couples waiting outside, we were invited inside and told the history of the synagogue, some of the young men lay tefillen and I got very emotional when I heard them say the "Shma". The Rabbi spoke good English and and Hebrew, he was very warm and welcoming. A very emotional and spiritual experience.

On a day tour of the city, we found the synagogue open because it was Friday afternoon and the Habad reps were in town from Venice to greet as many Israeli etc. Jewish guests as possible. There are some interesting non-Jewish features to this otherwise solid synagogue built by Catholic architects in the 19th century: There is a pulpit built unto the wall and some of the metalwork bars on the front windows have swastikas representing life cycles weaved into the design. This of course before the rise of nazism. On the pavement behind the synagogue, on Via Mazzini is a metal line marking part of the ghetto wall, "il ghetto".

I could only enjoy it from the exterior as it was not open. As is usual around synagogues in Europe...there were armed guards. Sad that this is the norm.
