I hate to rate this special site lower; the history here, and the lack of tourist traffic, made it a beautifully peaceful, special place on the edge of the Jewish quarter. There was a sweet, elderly Sephardic man selling tickets and giving out information, and you could tell he was so proud of the history here. Sadly, the last (largest) of the four synagogues was off limits to us (two Jewish women) because there seemed to be an impromptu yeshiva session--complete with aggressively loud argument over the Mishnah--going on inside it, so there had been a massive mechitza hung up, completely obscuring everything except the right-hand and far walls. You couldn't see the seats, the bimah, the sanctuary, etc. Just a white wall of fabric.

The Four Sephardic Synagogues

This is a must see in the Old City! The synagogues are hundred of years old and were demolished between 1948 and 1967 when the Jordanians controlled the city. They have since been restored when the Old City again came into Israeli hands.

Not Highly Publicized but Worth a Visit

We found the four Sephardic synagogues by accident, and were pleased that we did. The four are so close together that as you leave one, the same door takes you directly into the next. Some interesting artifacts and photos on display, including photos of the destruction of them by the Jordanian Legion in 1948.
