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.
