This is a very historic house of worship both for Savannah and nationally as it is one of the oldest Jewish Temples in the US. Excellent guide for a tour that took 30 - 45 minutes. Much history. Definitely recommend.

We are in Savannah for the long labor day weekend from FL and came across this beautiful synagogue. We decided to attend Shabbat services on Saturday. Service was lovely and congregants were warm and welcoming. The building is gorgeous. Thanks for including us!!

Extremely impressive tour, with a number of artifacts, including a Torah from the 1400’s. Knowledgeable and friendly people who are willing to share their congregation’s history.
