Portuguese Synagogue


Museums Places of Worship

The Portuguese Synagogue in Amsterdam stands testimony to the religious and cultural freedom that is enjoyed by the Dutch. Visitors coming here can be enriched with the enduring history of the Jews, how they came to settle in Amsterdam, what circumstances led them here, and the way of life that they conducted here. The Portuguese Synagogue has also gained widespread popularity with casual tourists, with its stylish architecture and sophisticated interior. A highlight here is the Ets Haim library, translated as the 'Tree of Life', which holds the distinction of being one of the oldest in the world.
