Synagogues in Lima

Selected Jewish Communities in Lima

There are quite a number of indigenous Peruvians who have recently started practicing Judaism and they together with the increasing number of foreigners living in Peru form the mayor asset of Peru's Jewish community. The relationships and bonds to international Jewish society are increasing steadily.

There are about 3,000 Jews in Peru today. The 3 major synagogues and their communities in Lima are all united within the Jewish Association of Peru (Asociacion Judia del Peru).
