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. To visit Kahal Zur Israel Synagogue on your holiday in Recife, and find out what else Recife has to offer, use our Recife.
