Just outside of Acre’s old walled city, lies the Or Torah Synagogue, also known as the Tunisian Synagogue in Acre.
The synagogue was first constructed in 1955 in line with a wave of Tunisian immigrants arriving in Israel during the 1950s and 1960s. The synagogue is widely credited with seeking to re-establish the Jewish pride seen in mosaics of ruined ancient synagogues found throughout Israel.
