The Ramchal's Synagogue North, Acre

בית הכנסת הרמח"ל

At the very southern end of the Old Akko Market, you will find a small house of prayer that is actually a gem of Jewish History. This synagogue was originally built by Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto - known famously as the Ramchal. The Ramchal lived in Akko from 1743 to 1747 and built this synagogue. A controversial figure in his day, the Ramchal left behind a priceless legacy to the world in his writings. His most popular work, the Mesilat Yesharim, is studied by students of ethics around the world. A mosque was built over the synagogue during the days of the Ottoman Empire, but it has since been restored. You can book this synagogue for an event like a bar mitzvah, or just go have a visit. The caretaker there may take out a Torah scroll that is no longer used ritually, to demonstrate the art of ancient Torah script.
