Jewish Focused tours of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Culture and History tour in Rio de Janeiro

Tour Price : $200-1000 Duration : 4-8 hours Languages: English, German, Hebrew, Spanish

Where was the very first synagogue on the American continent built?
Where did the first Jewish families come from?
My private tour is focused on the History of Jews in Rio, so you will be able to get answers to all these questions, and learn a great amount of information regarding the above-mentioned topic. I have worked out a special itinerary that will allow you to see all the most important sites which are somehow related to the Jews from Rio de Janeiro.  

As a high-qualified private guide in Brazil I would insist on beginning our tour from the Grand Temple. You should know that it is the first synagogue which appeared in Rio de Janeiro. For quite a long time it has been the centre of social and religious life of the Brazilian Jews. . 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.  

For example the Yitzhak Rabin memorial park park which was named after the Israeli prime minister. We will also take a look at several other less significant synagogues and various Jewish day schools. Besides all that we will take a look at some of the most popular landmarks of Rio de Janeiro such as the giant statue of Christ the Redeemer, the Sugar Loaf Mountain, some of the famous Brazilian beaches, Corcovado and some others.

This tour is aimed at giving you a brief presentation of the way the Jews lived and live in Rio.
