Love attending Friday night services at the Great Synagogue. The Choir is amazing. Really lifts you up spiritually to get you into Shabbos.

If you have any appreciation for a cantor and choir, do not miss Friday night or Saturday morning services. On Friday night, the last stanza of Lecho Dodi was sung to Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah". "Yigdal" was in harmony as was adon Olam.

I attended a Shabbat service on my own on the suggestion of my host in Jerusalem. I was a little nervous as I had never been in a Synagogue before, and not Jewish. However, it all went very well and I was so glad that i attended. As has been said before, the building is very impressive, with beautiful stained glass windows inside. I sat at the back, but was able to observe all that was going on within. It was such an education, and I was grateful for the experience. Men need to have some sort of head covering, but don't worry, you can quite easily borrow a kippel from the man at the entrance. The cantors were very impressive, but unfortunately the choir was not in attendance the day i was there. However, I was there for nearly 2 hours, and it flew past. I would fully recommend any visitor, regardless of religious belief, to attend. I know that I am really glad that I did!

The great synagogue is wonderfully located in the heart of Jerusalem. It is right across the street from what used to be the prime hotel , the Plaza, and is now called the Leinardo. It is around the coener from the American Consulate and down the block from the central outdoor shopping mall in Jerusalem. This is a place of Simcha (joy) with many weddings and Bar Mitzvahs take place and also is an active functioning synagogue. many cultural events happen here as well. It is well worth your while to check it out when you are in town
