Surabaya, Indonesia

Indonesia has a very small -and rapidly dwindling- Jewish population (I read somewhere that there approximately 2000 Jews in living Indonesia in 1933, 450 in 1957 and not more than 20 in 1997). The small Jewish community maintains a synagogue in Surabaya, the only one of its kind in Indonesia. Well, its nothing compared to the grandeur of other synagogues posted here, but I'll give credit to the Jewish community in Surabaya for their effort in maintaining their place of worship.

Pleasantville, NY (my hometown) has only one synagogue, and it is known as the Pleasantville Community Synagogue since there are a number of Jews living here as well, though this was originally a church.

Mikweh Israël Synagogue, built 1692, Willemstad, Curacao, Netherlands Antilles.

Protestant Holland, just emerging victorious from its war for religious freedom against Spain. Settling there at the turn of the 16th century under the protectorate of the burgomasters of Amsterdam and the freedom-loving House of Orange Nassau, these Spanish and Portuguese Jews helped make Amsterdam the commercial and shipping center of Europe. As for Jewish culture and religion, Amsterdam was to become known as the “NEW JERUSALEM”. The majestic Portuguese Synagogue on the Jonas Daniel Meyerplein, the “Esnoga”, still testifies proudly to the greatness that once was theirs.
The Dutch were among the first Europeans to practice religious tolerance. In 1654, numerous Jews arrived from Brazil after the Portuguese conquest of the Dutch colony.The Mikve Israel Synagogue, is now the oldest continuously used synagogue in the Americas.

ancient synagogues in Israel (1 cen.BC- 5 cen.AD)

Gush halav synagogue




chirbat shema synagogue




Bara'am synagogue






Katserin synagogue





Beit alfa synagogue








Hamat Tiberius synagogue










Chorazin

1st Century Synagogue







Capernaum Synagogue

Jesus was confronted by a demoniac while teaching here (Mark 1:21-27).

In Capernaum, Jesus healed the servant of the centurion. This Roman official was credited with building the synagogue (Luke 7:3).

In this synagogue, Jesus gave sermon on the bread of life (John 6:35-59).
