“Beautiful structure near Tiber Island.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

The Jewish Synagogue is on the Tiber River next to Tiber Island. The whole area is beautiful and there is a section of an old Roman bridge still standing in the Tiber River near the Synagogue. The whold Jewish Ghetto is worth a visit.

“Looking through Jewish eyes.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

This was a real eye opener. Evidently Rome had a Jewish population long before other European countries and this community was undisturbed until the second world war. Julius Caesar gave equal rights ( a no brainer!) and Jewish people mingled among the other various peoples of Rome.
I don't know if this is the same museum that others have reviewed, but it was inside the modern Synagogue which has also a sub-synagogue used by another Jewish group.
It was a reminder of how hard it has always been to be Jewish when we were ushered through a security checkpoint to get in.
However, it was a very moving portrait of a culture which has survived against all the odds. Well worth consideration.

“Beautiful synagogue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Beautiful synagogue, built in early 20th century and, unlike most, having survivied WW 2. Do not miss to take a tour with a guide (usually somebody from small, 16,000 members-strong local jewish) as the history of the place is interesting. The jewish museum located under synagogue is small but moving, with a beautiful collection of over 400 Torah mantles (mapah) made from old tissue and donated over time to the synagogue.

“It is beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

In our visit to Rome we wanted to visit the Synagogue. Due to Jewish festivities, the Synagogue was closed to visitors, though we could see the façade and it is so beautiful. Next time in Rome we hope to be luckier and be able to admire the interior.

“A must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

Be sure to take the tour. The pieces that the Jewish families have donated throughout the years are incredible and priceless. The main sanctuary's architecture is quite elaborate, with intricate details (pictures are not allowed).

Kosher restaurants are only a street away.
