Built in a lavish Baroque style, this beautiful synagogue’s interior belonged to a 1719 synagogue in Conegliano Veneto, Italy, which was removed and transported to Jerusalem in its entirety after the Holocaust.

A beautiful small museum with great Jewish Italian art. The ancient synagogue (300 YEARS OLD) is little Italy in the middle of Jerusalem. Check the beautiful painted room at the entrance, and ask about performances. They have Operas and choirs and live music at night.

They have services there on Saturday (Shabbat) morning. I don't know for sure but it is advisable that you visit there some other day.
