    What to Expect
    Kick off your tour with hotel pickup, where you’ll board an air-conditioned vehicle destined to delve into the Jewish heritage of Rio de Janeiro. Your first stop is Park Itzhak Rabin, founded by the prominent Israeli politician, which boasts privileged views of Botafogo Beach and Sugar Loaf Mountain.

    Then, proceed to downtown Rio to see Chaim Weitzman Square and a school named after Anne Frank. The next stop is Museu Judaico do Rio de Janeiro, a Jewish museum whose artifacts speak eloquently of the city’s Jewish history.

    The Jewish Grand Temple is a building as elaborate as its name suggests: spend a while admiring the inside of the structure with your guide.

    Following this, head to Synagogue Shel Gmelut Hassidim and hear of its illustrious history. At your request, a visit to this synagogue can be replaced with a visit to Beth Yacov and Beit Lubavitch.

    Your tour concludes with drop-off at your Rio hotel.

    Leonardo was an exceptional guide in showing us the important Jewish sites of Rio de Janeiro and imparting his knowledge of the Jewish community in Rio. We appreciated Leonardo's flexibility in doing this tour for us as we were delayed in getting from the airport to the hotel.
