30 Cent 1975 - Amsterdam - Portuguese Synagogue
Added by Bart Perdieus
General Description : The Portuguese Synagogue also known as the Esnoga (Ladino: אסנוגה), or Snoge, is a 17th-century Sephardic synagogue in Amsterdam. Esnoga is the Ladino word for synagogue. The Amsterdam Sephardic community was one of the largest and richest in Europe during the Dutch Golden Age, and their very large synagogue reflected this. The description in a speech in January 2012 by Israeli Prime-Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as "one the most beautiful synagogues I have ever seen" reflects a very common view, and the synagogue is a popular tourist attraction.
