The most stunning synagogues in Israel

No visit to the Holy Land is complete without some Holy site seeing. While areas in Jerusalem and Nazareth host iconic churches, scattered across the rest of the country are some of the most spectacular synagogues in Israel. Don’t just pass by the Great Synagogue on Allenby, duck inside and admire its beauty; don’t let Tzfat’s ultra-orthodox ideals scare you away, revel in its synagogues’ ancient Israeli Torah scrolls; don’t just stare from afar, explore the interior of Tel Aviv’s seashell-shaped temple. Whether you’re orthodox, conservative, reform or atheist, these stunning synagogues with their stained glass windows and grand structures deserve more than a doubletake.

While you may want to tackle all the famous historical landmarks that cover generations of your family’s heritage, there is only so much dry history your children can take and only so many rugelach you can buy them at the Mahane Yehuda market to keep them from complaining. We’ve taken the entire family into mind and come up with a list of fun things to do in Jerusalem with your children and your children’s children. While Tel Aviv’s got the kid-friendly Park HaYarkon, Jerusalem’s got plenty to do with a biblical zoo, interactive museums, and even a scavenger hunt to trick the kids into learning with a hands-on history tour around town.
