The Sepharadic Synagogues evolved over 300 years in the southern part of the Jewish Quarter in the old city of Jerusalem.

Like the rest of the Jewish Quarter, they were looted and destroyed by the Jordanians and local Arab population in 1948, and were abanodoned dump sites till 1967.

Now they are rebuilt and active again, presenting a unique chapter in the history of the Sepharadic Jews and Jerusalem in the late Middle Ages.
