Tiferet Yisrael Synagogue, also known as the Nisan Bek Shul, was one of the most prominent synagogues to ever exist in of the Old City of Jerusalem until its destruction in 1948.
Brian J. Sherr, Managing Shareholder Emeritus of GT’s Fort Lauderdale office, and member of the firm’s global real estate group, has been leading, as part of his role as Chairman with the nonprofit organization American Friends of the Old City, an ambitious project to restore the famous synagogue. Over the past 8 years, in joint efforts with the state of Israel and the Jerusalem Municipality, extensive construction has been taking place onsite with the aim of restoring the synagogue which used to serve as a Jewish center for the Jewish community in the city. One of the features differentiating Tiferet Yisrael from other synagogues, is its prime location, towering over the entire Jewish Quarter of the Old City, and overlooking the Western Wall.
