I went on a tour of this synagogue as part of a learn and tour course. I am so happy we went to visit this amazing place - great way to learn history and see restored Judaica.

We visited this beautiful building and enjoyed the ancient architecture and the amazing decoration . So much history and art . You don't have to be a Jew to enjoy and learn the history , heritage and the cultural influences that created this unique atmosphere.

The synagogue is a reconstruction of the synagogue as it was in Italy. It is Interesting from a historical viewpoint and it is currently still being used. The adjacent museum has interesting artifacts of the Italian-Jewish community. If you like seeing artifacts from old Jewish communities, you will love this museum. For the rest, it's an interesting 45 minutes.

A beautiful small museum with great Jewish Italian art. The ancient synagogue (300 YEARS OLD) is little Italy in the middle of Jerusalem. Check the beautiful painted room at the entrance, and ask about performances. They have Operas and choirs and live music at night.
