A symbol of hope in one of the most debated cities in the world.
The Jerusalem Great Synagogue was founded in 1982 as a spiritual, religious, cultural and social centre for Jerusalem. It is dedicated to the Jewish lives lost during the Holocaust, and to those who have spent their lives establishing and protecting the State of Israel. The synagogue is a symbol of the hope and continuation of the Jewish people, as well as a reminder of all the hardships they have faced. Come to the Great Synagogue to join in a prayer service, Torah study, lectures and other weekly activities, or simply to admire its beauty. Hosting a world renowned Cantor and choir, stained-glass windows and an exhibit of historic and contemporary mezuzah covers in the lobby, there is much to see here. Free guided tours are available if you call ahead.
