Spending Shabbat in Panama City is a wonderful experience.
As Panama continues to open up from their Covid restrictions, so too will the limitations on attending weekday and Shabbat services at the local shuls.
There are four Orthodox shuls located in the Panama City area.
1. Sinagoga Shevet Ahim - Bella Vista (Sefaradi)
2. Sinagoga Ahavat Sion & Ateret Yosef- Punta Paitilla (Sefaradi)
3. Sinagoga Beth El - Punta Paitilla (Ashknaz)
4. Sinagoga Bet Max Ve Sarah - Punta Pacifica (Sefaradi)
5. Chabad Center of Panama City - Rabbi Pinchas Cohen - firstname.lastname@example.org
Outside of Panama City there are shuls in the beach areas of Coronado and Santa Clara
1. Sinagoga Heijal Shlomo - Coronado (Sefaradi)
2. Sinagoga Mishkan Moshe - Santa Clara (Sefaradi)
3. Chabad of Boquete - email@example.com
4. Chabad of Bocas del Toro - firstname.lastname@example.org
