Restoration of the Synagogue
Where the heartbeat of prayer and community meet
May your eyes be open towards this temple (I Kings 8:29)
Inaugurated in 1882, the Synagogue of Florence, which follows the Sephardic rite, is one of the largest and richest in terms of art in Europe. It was built based on a project prepared by Marco Treves, due to a generous bequest from Baron David Levi, who in 1868 bequeathed most of his assets for the construction of a new temple. More than 40,000 tourists and Jews from all over the world visit and pray there each year. The building needs immediate major renovation work so that the central oval rosette window of the cupola and side wooden rostrums are secured. With your help we can keep this place of worship alive, a precious jewel of art and the pulsing heart of the Jewish Community of Florence.
