The Jewish presence in Rio de Janeiro started at the time of the first Portuguese navigators in the 1500´s. Since then, the Israelite immigration was constant, mainly thanks to the encouragement of a great admirer of the Jewish culture, no one less than the emperor D. Pedro II. Following the example in many cities in the world, we have selected the main attractions of the Jewish heritage in Rio de Janeiro, presented by expert tour guides.

The tour begins with a visit to Park Itzhak Rabin, inaugurated by Lea, his wife, with privileged views over Botafogo beach and Sugar Loaf.

On the way to Downtown, see Chaim Weitzman Square, a public school named after Anne Frank and the neighborhood of Catete, where resident Jews formerly established a thriving furniture commerce. Then we do a visit to the Jewish Museum and the Grand Temple, a beautiful building from 1932.

The next attraction is the Synagogue Shel Gmelut Hassidim (in the Sephardic Jewish-Spanish rite), which has received the visit of emperor D. Pedro II, located in Botafogo. In Copacabana, we visit the Club Israelita Brasileiro and Beth El Synagogue.

Note: The synagogues Beth Yacov (in the Eastern-European Ashkenazi rite) in Copacabana, and Beit Lubavitch (Orthodox Chasidic rite), in Leblon, may replace other synagogues, according to client´s request and/or availability.
