EDJC 2023 > European Days of Jewish Culture in Oporto
Kadoorie Mekor Haim Synagogue
Admission free. Inaugurated in 1938, the Kadoorie Synagogue is the largest in the Iberian Peninsula, a Jewish centre with two prayer rooms, patios for sukkot, library, study room, mikvah for ritual bathing, restaurant, grocery, security bunkers and others. On the “European Day of Jewish Culture” only the garden, the prayer room and the library will be open.
15 large paintings portraying the millenary history of the Jewish community of Oporto will be in exhibition. Many Portuguese and foreign artists worked under the coordination of the artist of the Jewish Community of Oporto, Flor Mizhahi – a Sephardic Jewess born in Venezuela.
The Mekor Haim male Choir will perform in the main prayer room of Kadoorie Synagogue, at 17:00, singing liturgical music from its vast repertoire. The aim is to share Jewish melodies with the city’s friendly population.
