  • This synagogue is to visit, its location is somewhat hidden, and by the kindness of hospitality and the interest of the explanations.

  • Last week I traveled to Bukhara and went to synagogue I was well received on Shabbos 15 people beautiful but small and old.

  • This synagogue has some historical significance in that it is one of the only remaining ones in Samarkand. BUT there isn't really much to see. It is small and run down and in need of some serious TLC.  more »

  • Beautiful synagogue with wonderful history. Usually locked though, so one needs to find the right person in the neighbourhood to open it. We only by chance saw the guy passing, so we got lucky.
