The “Etz Chaim” /Abulafia Synagogue was established in 1742 by Rabbi Chaim Abulafia, and underwent reconstructions after the earth quakes of 1759 and 1837, and the great flood of 1934.

In the synagogue’s basement a unique Riutal Bath  (“Mikveh”) operates by water filling it from the Sea of Galilee. Being so it is usually dry in therecent years. Last time It filled up was in 2003.

Near to it are the Karlin-Stolin synagogue, the Chabad-Lubavitch syangogue and the “Senior” Syangogue.
