The Best Western Eretz Copacabana will be managed by Best Western and will be completed by March 2016. The hotel will feature 64 rooms, a shul led by Chabad of Copacabana, and a kosher restaurant.
Additionally, Rio De Janeiro’s local Jewish community will open two synagogues to accommodate Jewish visitors coming to the 2016 summer Olympics.
The Copacabana neighborhood already has a kosher restaurant operated by the local Chabad, Shelanu Kosher Bar & Grill, that delivers to the local hotels, as well as a kosher pizza shop and a few kosher markets. Additionally, Chabad operates a “Kosher Loft” next door to the Chabad.
