Jewish Heritage: the Three Cantors

The Portuguese (or Sephardic) Synagogue of Amsterdam was built several hundred years ago and was never "electrified". The arc, seats, beams are all hand made by ship builders.

During World War II the Nazis somehow missed it and never entered it, so it is entirely intact and original. It is a real beauty. This concert was done in that sanctuary.
