Your ancient roots
Let's embark on this adventure!
Jewish immigration to Brazil started in 1630 in Pernambuco state where the 1st synagogue in the Americas was built.
1920th, marked the arrival of the first immigrants to Rio. We'll visit the 1st first synagogue of Rio dated 1932. Its architecture is simultaneously solemn and monumental and was inspired on the Great Synagogues of Florence and Trieste.
After we'll go to the Jewish Museum founded in 1977 by 3 couples of the community who donated their personal collections to preserve history and culture of their backgrounds in Brazil. The main core of the Museum is 69 Hanukkah lamps and other objects made by the artisan Joseph Feldman.
We'll move to the Israeli Religious Association, a liberal congregation formed in 1936 to assist the German Jewish immigrants arriving in increasing number.
Hungry? At Gutessen you will feel like home trying our Jewish cuisine.
We'll finish with The Midrash Cultural Center A progressive space from 2009 that diffuses art, culture and thoughts.

I just wanted to share how much I enjoyed spending the day with Rose. She was very knowledgeable about the sites that I was interested in seeing as well as some places that I had not expected to see that day. She was very personable, friendly and I look forward to using her services again in the near future. Rose, thanks for the pictures and your restaurant suggestion was one of the best!
