THE GREAT BELZ SHUL
The great Belz Shul is situated in the Kiryat Belz neighborhood of Yerushalayim. It was modeled after the original Great Synagogue in pre-war Europe.
Its colossal edifice and ornate beauty enhance Yerrushalyim’s skyline. The shul boasts the largest aron kodesh (ark) in the world, as documented in the Guiness World of Records.
Thousands of mispallalim (worshippers) attend prayer services, learning sessions and communal gatherings at the Great Belz Shul each week. The shul is a landmark destination for Jews visiting from around the world.
