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 because of incentives of the Emperor D. Pedro II, a great admirer of the Jewish culture. For this tour we have a selection of the main attractions of the Jewish heritage in Rio de Janeiro and they will be presented to you by our
expert tour guide.

 

The tour will begin with a visit to Park Itzhak Rabin, with its privileged views over Botafogo beach and Sugar Loaf Mountain.

 

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 business. Then we will make a visit to the Jewish Museum and the Grand Temple, a beautiful building from 1932.

 

The next attraction will be 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 Yaacov (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.
