Yom Kippur

This year Yom Kippur services will also be held at the beautiful Esnoga. Because of the rising costs for security we kindly ask you for your donation. Please make a reservation by purchasing a ticket. A ticket will be necessary for all non-members of the Portugees Israelietische Gemeente.

Tickets may be purchased online (http://www.portugesesynagoge.nl/bezoek/koop-een-e-ticket or at the box office of the Portuguese Synagogue during opening hours. On October 3 the box office is open until 5:35 p.m.

During the services child care facilities are available. Please make sure that you keep a close eye on your children (young and older) during the services. The Portuguese Synagogue is not responsible for any damages or bodily harm. You are however responsible for any damage caused at the Synagogue.

Please note that the services are held for the Jewish Community only and that visitors should respect the closed character of the services. It is strongly recommended not to purchase a ticket if one is a visitor, since entrance may be denied at the gate.

For more information please contact the office of the Portugees-Israelietische Gemeente, e-mail info@esnoga.com.
