T'bilisi Things to Do: 190 reviews and 503 photos
The main synagogue in Tbilisi (actually, there are two, but one isn't so 'main') is ovely , pretty and a relatively large religious structure.
There are a few things nice about this synagogue. One is that it is on a street that also has a mosque and a church. Another thing is that it's very welcoming. You don't need a letter of invitation, or show them your passport, or prove to them that you're a Jew-in-good-standing to enter. (Sadly, this is the case in some cities.) Anyoneand everyone is welcome. And, the man that showed me around said that, in over 100 years, there was never any problems in Tbilisi with them, even during rather bleak Soviet times.
Directions: in the Old Town
