This synagogue is a classic building of the Old City of Jerusalem. It is beautiful inside and you can see some of the best views of Jerusalem from the top. It is definitely worth stopping here to visit and see the sights.

This synagogue has a rich history of survival. You will see Talmudic students immersed in serious learning. Learn the history of the “burnt” shul.... it’s an amazing place!

The synagogue which is now in use on weekends is beautiful. The stained glass windows and the history which can be read inside the synagogue without the need for a tour guide is amazing.

This Synagogue was rebuilt after the 6 day war. On the top floor there is an outside and inside terrace. Outside, fantastic views of the city. Inside, you can observe worship, prayers and studies going on. Beautiful adornments.

Beautiful Synagog restored after arab bombing. The aron Kodesh is one of the biggest and most elaborate in israel. It is an active Shul so please be respectful of those praying or learning during specific times of the day.

You don't actually go into the sanctuary you view it from above - unless you are going to pray - so I think that would be alright.
