We were struck by the scale and design of this building as we walked past to see Teatro Colon. It is the largest synagogue in South America; how curious that Eichmann and other Nazi war criminals hid out in Buenos Aires after the war! Nice...More

My daughter and I received a warm welcome at the Templo. An English speaking guide showed us the beautiful sanctuary, explained the history of the building and answered our questions about the current Jewish community. The interior is reminiscent of German and French churches of...More

Such a warm and welcoming synagogue. You need to make arrangements to visit and bring your passport for entry, but so worth it. Loved the services with such a nice rabbi, hazan and congregants. Interior of the synagogue, which is the largest in South Ametica,...More

We wanted to visit this site as it is the largest synagogue in South America, however it appeared closed when we arrived. The bronze biblical plaques outside were still impressive however I was a little underwhelmed by the building itself.

Located about one block from the Theater (number one attraction on TripAdvisor), this impressive facade – is as far as I got. I'd hoped to be allowed to at least peak inside but was sorely disappointed. Apparently, the sanctuary and the Jewish Museum next door...More

Discovered this on my walk along Libertad Av from the Plaza Libertad to Teatro Colon. It was locked up firmly at 1pm on a Tuesday so only able to see the exterior.

The architecture of this synagogue is really amazing, but the best part of this Synagogue is the museum. Remember to bring your passport to enter. Museum has a small fee and is worth it. The best part is the wonderful gift shop with local judaica...More

Your physical passport is needed for entrance. Check for tour times. Included is the Museo Judeo, with the history of Jews in Argentina. Impressive sanctuary. Small gift shop (better selection in Abasto Jewish section of town).

Buenos Aires is the home to the largest Jewish community in Latin America . In a Jewish tour you must visit the Synagogue of the Jewish Congregation of Argentine Republic. CIRA in spanish. Temples, schools, cultural centers, restaurants and bakeries are in different neighborhoods.

true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant

After dark, the hubbub migrates to Corrientes Ave.,
