Tours of the synagogue are organised on request subject to the availability of guides, all of whom are volunteers. If you are interested in arranging a tour, please contact us at least 48 hours in advance using the form link below — the earlier, the better.

Alternatively, you may wish to join a tour that is already scheduled, as shown on this page. In this case, please let us know of your intention to come along. It sometimes happens that a tour is cancelled by the original group that requested it, but if we know of your interest, the tour can still go ahead.

Please be aware that we do not offer tours on Saturday (the Jewish Sabbath) or on Jewish holidays.

There is no fixed charge for tours. However, your donation to the congregation will be invited and received with gratitude. We will also gladly accept money in your local currency.
