Jewish Cairo

Ben Ezra Synagogue may be the home of more history and legends than any other synagogue in the world. Over 400,000 items were discovered there, including a valuable collection of ancient manuscripts and Torah scrolls, dating back over a thousand years.

It is said that the Ben Ezra Synagogue is built on the ruins of a church, which in turn was built on the ruins of a synagogue. One of its many legends is that it marks the spot where Pharaoh's daughter found the Baby Moses. The synagogue features Arabesque designs on the walls and ceiling, bright stained-glass windows and mother-of-pearl cabinets.
