“A beautiful tiny synagogue”
Jun 1, 2018
“Beautiful ”
Built in a lavish Baroque style, this beautiful synagogue’s interior belonged to a 1719 synagogue in Conegliano Veneto, Italy, which was removed and transported to Jerusalem in its entirety after the Holocaust.

This synagogue has a lovely story and really is extraordinarily beautiful. More reminiscent of an ornate church; it is a delightful place to pop in to or catch a service. Off the usual list of main religious sites but deserving of your attention.
