Private tour in Rio de Janeiro

The Jewish tour is also quite famous in Rio de Janeiro. The first Jews appeared in Rio more than half of millennium ago with the first courageous Portuguese navigators. Since that time, the immigration from Israel was constant, mainly due to the emperor Dom Pedro Secondo, who was a great admirer of the Jewish culture and strived to encourage the immigration of Jews.  

You can find numerous mentionings  of Jews in the works of Adolfo Varnhagen, the well-known Brazilian historian. He said that the Jews took a considerable part in the struggle for the Brazilian Independence. It is worth noting that they made a great contribution to this campaign. As you see the Jews have left numerous traces throughout the history of Rio de Janeiro, that’s why there are so many places connected with them in Rio.

Private tour guides in Rio de Janeiro  usually begin their itinerary with the Park Itzhak Rabin. It is immediately followed by Chaim Weitzman Square which is distinguished by its beauty and grandeur. Another place of interest is the public school, which was named after Anne Frank, and the Catete neighborhood, where thriving furniture commerce was established by some businesslike Jews.

The Jewish Museum and the Grand Temple are one of the most famous landmarks of Rio for those who are interested in rich Jewish history and culture.
