The Synagogue has been restored and is worth a visit but, unless you have a special interest, combine your visit with a 1-hour Klezmer Music Concert. Check the times at the tourist office (where you can book a ticket) but they are usually at 6pm...More

On Fri evening the place was over crowded, on Shabbat morning, almost empty. Acoustics are terrible, painfully noisy. Place dominated by Chabad, take it or leave it. On the walls you can see remainders of the original deco which is interesting. Otherwise, the place is...More

I know it's a place of worship and they have to keep it looking nice but didn't particularly want to pay just to look around!

I was lucky enough to attend a Sabboth service on the 15/07/16. Although I am not Jewish, I have always been fascinated by both the culture & religion, therefore this was a chance not to be missed. I felt honoured that I was offered the...More
