Myanmar’s only synagogue, Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue stands the test of time, beautifully maintained to serve the small Jewish community of the city. Constructed in 1893 and tucked into a busy street, the building is a listed heritage site of the city and a remnant of the country’s colonial era. Once a thriving place of worship, the synagogue now serves fewer than 20 members, but still opens its doors for services and as a museum. Visit in the morning, admiring the Torah reading table, ornate balconies, and delicate white and blue decorations depicting the Star of David motif.

  • Particular that right in such a busy average area of Yangon such a synagogue is authentic. T was very good for Burmese!

  • First time visiting a synagogue. Eye opening experience. We were impressed by the architecture and the artifacts in the synagogue 
  • 一座隐藏在闹市中的小小犹太教堂,费了很大功夫才找到的,其实细心一点,早点发现墙上的六芒星的话,就能省很多寻找的功夫。当时已经快下午一点了,发现铁门已经关上了,没法进入,下次一定要早点去。背后就是一座清真寺,这些宗教场所如此密集又和谐地在一片区域内共处,令我感到不可思议。 
  • A Beautiful synagogue, hidden in plain site. Lovingly cared for with much history in a changing city.
  • Moses Samuels is a classy gentleman
