Kahal Zur Israel Synagogue, Recife

4.4
For a taste of Jewish history and culture visit Kahal Zur Israel Synagogue, the first synagogue in the Americas, built in the mid-17th century. It was the opening of this synagogue that made the Jewish community’s migration to New York possible. The charming architecture of the building itself serves as a nice contradiction to the surrounding buildings. View the collection of photos and personal documents of the Jews who lived in Recife. Then, be sure to place your prayer in the replica of the wailing wall.

  • I was curious to know the place, but the price charged r $ 20.00 in the ordinance scares a little.. I think it should be charged yes, but a modest amount so everyone can come in and know. Since you can't take internal photos, despite having several on the internet, you should rethink that amount a little bit.

  • Choose to go during the day and, if possible, on a weekday, when the movement is greater. There are many homeless people, beware of their belongings. The synagogue was closed, but you can still take nice pictures, because the street is beautiful, wooded.
