On our trip to the North on December 5, 2018 on Chunnukah 2018 we visit Acre and the famous Tunisian Synagogue and its thousands of mural tiles. A visit worth the trip itself the Or Torah – "Jariva" – (Tunisian) Synagogue, Acre
One of the world's most breathtaking tourist sites.
The Tunisian Synagogue in Acre – known as the "Jariva" is the only one of its kind in the world. It is literally covered in mosaics – both inside and out. Each of its 4 floors proudly displays spectacular mosaics (from Kibbutz Eilon) – the outcome of 54 years of work. The Synagogue boasts 7 Torah arks and houses hundreds of millions of natural stones from all over Israel.
The mosaics and stained-glass windows depict the history of the Jewish people and of the Land of Israel through Bible stories, flora and fauna, IDF corps and more
