Or Torah Synagogue

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.
