  • I can't speak highly enough about the warm and inviting nature of the Porto Jewish community. Tours to see the synagogue are given in the afternoons (except Saturdays and holidays) - by previous appoi...  more »
  • This Synagogue started to be built in 1929 and completed in 1938 with the help of a Chinese Jew Mr. Kadoorie. It is a Sepharad synagogue and has 200 members. The visits are after 12:30pm, but it is be...  more »
  • The synagogue was inaugurated in 1938, the same year that synagogues were burnt to ashes in Germany. It is a nice 2 story building- painted in white and surrounding by a high fence. It is still a plac...  more »

  • It's certainly worth the visit, just make sure you book ahead. Also note the fine irony, the Synagogue is guarded by a German Shepard dog.
  • I went there to buy some matzas for the Seder and unfortunately they only had some expensive ones left (18€!!!) and they couldn't make me a receipt. The place looks nice, but I didn't have the chance to take a tour. It seems not to be accessible to wheelchairs and strollers at all. The best thing was the beautiful German Shepard who is guarding the entrance, he is a very friendly dog, once you are inside the gate of the synagogue.
  • This was by far the best part of our trip to Porto. Just ring the door bell and you'll be welcomed into a peaceful and educating environment. Joanna, our guide, was just brilliant: we learnt more about Portuguese history in those few hours than we did on our entire trip. Moreover, the synagogue is just beautiful. You don't need to be interested in religion to enjoy this day out. If you're interested in history then this is the place to be!
  • Lovely tour! The guide is very knowledgeable and friendly, answering clearly to all the questions (even the dumb ones).
  • What a wonderful place! Such an honorable members of this Synagogue. The ambiance is very friendly. I have been in many Synagogue around the world but Kadoorie Mekor Haim is the best synagogue I ever visited even though I was in the main Portuguese Synagogues around the world (Portuguese Synagogue of Montreal, Bevis Marks (Portuguese) Synagogue in London, Portuguese Synagogue in Amsterdam, Mikve Israel-Emanuel Synagogue in Curacao, Congregation Shearith Israel in New York, Comunidad Nidhe Israel, in Florida and many more). I have appreciated all the effort that was made to organize Shabbaton. I want to take this opportunity to thank The Jewish Community of Oporto for the terrific job they are doing to revive the Jewish life of beautiful Oporto. Yigal Ben Zion.
