The Portuguese-Sephardic Synagogue in Amsterdam is lit only by candles. Built several hundred years ago, it was never electrified. The ark, seats, bimah etc., were all handmade by ship builders.
During World War Two, the Nazis missed it and never entered. Completely intact and original, it is beautiful.
Enjoy the singing!
