The word Kenesa is derived from the Hebrew Knesset, which means assembly. This is where the Karaites worship. Under a sophisticated renovation, this building is rarely open to outsiders. Enjoy it from the street.

Prayer house for Karaite. Currently under renovation and not open to the public. Finish time uncertain as it depends on receiving funding.

This is probably a lovely place inside, but who would know since it is not open to the public. Not sure why it as listed under Things to Do.
