“Halleluja- Synagogues Past and Present” Online Virtual Tour Series

Hosted By: The Museum of the Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot

What stories do synagogues tell? In this 3-part tour, we will explore synagogues from Syria, Poland, the USA, Curacao, Holland, and more to discover the unique identities of Jews that pray (or prayed) there, as well as show commonalities. The gallery, based on the famous collection of Beit Hatfutsot’s synagogue models, showcases how these structures act not only as prayer spaces but as community centers. We will engage participants to reflect on their own Jewish spaces and ask: what does it say about my personal Jewish story?

The tour will be interactive, personal and will last around 45 minutes with time for questions. Suggested donation of $10
