“another great site”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

This is a very large Synagogue in beautiful condition. As there are no open squares around, it is hard to get a good photo of the building.

“One of the nicest synagogues in Europe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

It has been renewed for the festivities commemorating its 100 years. It is very ornate inside, and a pure pleasure to see it and feel the athmosphere

“Just ring the bell, and your inside a courtyard, then striking synagogue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

It cost 2 Lev, less than 2 dollars,
And it was worth it to see this spectacular 2 level synagogue with beautiful mosaics, tiles, and painted walls

While I was there schools children were touring
