Dear members of our community and friends of the Sofia Synagogue,

We are following closely the Coronavirus situation and strictly follow the recommendations of government institutions to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The Sofia Synagogue is closed for tourists and no prayers are held at this time. The latter was granted special permission by the Chief Rabbi of Israel.

The synagogue works with reduced staff until the Passover feast, allowing people to individually enter the building to purchase matzah, wine and other kosher products.

After Passover, kosher products will only be purchased by pre-order at or by calling 0888874755

If you need funeral arrangements, please contact us at 0888874755

We urge you to be conscientious and follow the recommendations to restrict contacts.

We will keep you updated in time with other changes.

Stay healthy and safe!

The team of the Sofia Synagogue
