This is a historic synagogue that should not be missed. The history of the Jewish people in America is an important part of American history and some of it is told in the museum on the second floor. This is the third oldest Jewish congregation in America. Make sure you check for tour hours because they are limited to certain... More

This synagogue is quite a gem and the people running it are so very friendly and knowledgeable. Our docent--unfortunately I didn't get his name--was great. Knew all the answers and was delightful. Great tiny gift shop. Worth the visit.

During our first visit to Savannah in March 2014, we visited this synagogue and had a very interesting tour. Regrettably it only offers tours on weekdays M-F; therefore we missed it during this past long weeekend trip.

We walked to the Synagogue hoping to see the inside and see the service, however they were closed on Friday evening. I wanted to go on a tour, but sadly they only offer tours M-F 9-4 or so. I would love to come back during the week to see the inside, however the outside architecture was really beautiful!

I am sorry that you did not get to see the inside, the stained glass windows are especially beautiful with the sun shining through them. I hope you can come back soon! Unfortunately we are closed starting Friday at 4pm until Monday at 10am, we are a very active congregation and that is when we use the building for religious... More

This is worth a visit, off of Monterey Square. Third oldest synagogue in the country with an impressive museum upstairs. Tour is about a half hour, very informative.

Don't go to Savannah in June July or August; oppressively hot and it is otherwise an excellent walking city.

A knowledgeable and entertaining member of the congregation gave the tour. Unique synagogue in its history and architecture. Also served as a nice break from walking all over the historic district!
