Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Associação Hehaver - Sinagoga Ohel Jacob, R. Filipe da Mata 103 2.º andar, 1600-070 Lisboa, Portugal

The Ohel Jacob Synagogue (“Tent of Jacob”) was founded in 1934 by a small Jewish group of Ashkenazic origin from Central Europe. This group of Jews, primarily Poles, would play a remarkable role in the dynamization of this religious space, a singular synagogue characterized by its openness to the outside, tolerance and understanding for Jews of all origins, especially the integration of the descendants of Marranos – or b’nei Anusim –, these sons of the “forced”.
