We contacted the rabbi and were asked to speak at the Friday night services. The rabbi and his wife are friendly and knowledgeable. I thought the synagogue was lovely. The service was spirited with lots of singing. The locals participated as well as some tourists. I gather this is typical. At the kiddush many people wanted to speak with us... More

The last time we went to the island, we also went to Curacao with one of my main interests, in addition to seeing another island, being to visit the very old synagogue there. It was really amazing. Beth Israel on Aruba was not nearly as ornate a... More

We wanted a minion to support our saying Kaddish for a loved one while traveling in Aruba a number of years ago. Since we go to Aruba at about the same time every year, this warm, friendly and welcoming synoggue has become a part of our regular Aruba routine and we are very pleased that it is there for us....

The rabbi is lovely and welcomes all guests to his service. There is a kiddush after Friday night services and everyone is friendly and introduces themselves.

A small conservative synagogue that makes you feel a little closer to home that you thought possible.

My wife and I have been going to Aruba since 1993 and we became Off Shore members since then. we love being with the local people and have made many friend with them. I don't go to often at home but look forward to going in Aruba. the services are short and enjoyablele especaly when Caption Peters does the service.

A wonderful way to appreciate the Jewish presence in ARUBA and what it has and currently does contribute to the history and the ongoing business of the ARUBA. The building itself is interesting but, if you are a practitioner (or not) and you are in ARUBA during a HOLIDAY or a WEEKEND then participation with the congregation is an exceptional... More
