Candlelight concert in the Portuguese Synagogue  Thursday 22 May 2014 20.00

Amsterdam Klezmer Band

The Jewish Cultural Quarter regularly presents concerts in the Portuguese Synagogue. You can enjoy a wide range of musical styles in a synagogue illuminated by hundreds of candles. The Portuguese Synagogue is unheated, and it can be cool inside even in the spring, so make sure to bring a coat with you! The concerts are about one hour long. Grachtenfestival Foto: Ronald Knapp
