Known for impactful natural spaces, green rainforests, stunning beaches, and unique culture, Jewish tours of Brazil are an opportunity to get to know one of the most beautiful countries on earth.
There’s a lot to offer for Jewish travel groups to Brazil from a country known for vibrant colors, festivities, and the yearly Carnaval.
Visit unique places like Rio, sip a caipirinha in the Bohemian district of Lapa, eat acai on Copacabana Beach, and witness the mesmerizing spectacle of a carnival samba dance at the ‘sambodromo’.
Outside of Rio, discover the Amazon and Iguazu Falls, the historic Bahia, and the bustling metropolis of Sao Paulo, home to the largest Jewish community in Brazil. Walk along beautiful beaches with views of mountains and skyscrapers in the distance.
On Jewish heritage tours in Brazil, learn about the second-largest Jewish community in Latin America, with a Jewish history in the country that goes back all the way to 1500.
Brazil is home to the Kahal Zur Israel synagogue in Recife, originating all the way back to the Inquisition in Portugal and founded in the 17th century as the first synagogue in the Americas.
Much of the community today is from the 19th and 20th centuries, descending from the immigrations of Ashkenazi Jews.
On Jewish trips to Brazil, visit the Clandestina Synagogue and take a ride in a catamaran along the Capiberibe River. Take a stroll through Yitzhak Rabin Park, Chaim Weizmann Square, and see Anne Frank public school and the Jewish museum.
Visit Brazil on a Jewish heritage tour. There’s nothing like it.
