Welkom bij de Portugees-Israëlietische Gemeente

Welcome to the Portuguese synagogue of Amsterdam! 

Who are we?
Welcome to the Portuguese Jewish synagogue of Amsterdam! The Talmud Torah community was founded in 1639 by Jews who had fled from Spain and Portugal to the Netherlands. We are an orthodox Sefardic community and are attached to our customs, traditions and modern outlook on life.

In times of Corona, we are sharing recordings of our traditional melodies on our community’s YouTube channel to bring the Esnoga closer to you. Listen here to a festive melody for Adon Olam, sung by our Chazzan Danny Shapiro.
