Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah at the Esnoga 

The services in the Esnoga are known around the globe for its beautiful Portuguese melodies, the men with their top hats and the hundreds of candles that illuminate the sanctuary. That special atmosphere will take you to Spain and Portugal from centuries ago.
