A beautiful old Synagogue that has changed with the times, transforming itself as the population changes.
You must know that it's up a very steep hill. When we got off of the cruise line, we asked about a taxi to the synagogue. They charged us an extra dollar each for the ride. ($5 instead of $4!) The best value of the whole trip! The walk down and back to the heart of town was slow and easy, but we were very glad to have taken the taxi all the way up the hill.
It's free to go in, and of course, it's nice to give a donation to keep it going. The photos with accompanying information give one a sense of the past and there is a video talk from the present Rabbi that brings you up to date on where they are now. There are many types of interesting information, with news articles and essays. You could visit for a few minutes or spend hours there. All are welcome. During its history, the congregation has been everything from Orthodox to Reform, but the important thing is that it still exists. An example of adaptation and yet preservation. There is a fabulous gift shop where the items range from very inexpensive to very expensive, depending on what you want. The lady there is lovely and helpful.
If you are Jewish, it's a must see. If not, and you like to visit churches, mosques, etc, it's also a must see.
