The Synagogue tour was wonderful. The tour guide spoke English and was extremely knowledgable. The synagogue is the second oldest synagogue in France. It is in the Baroque Provencal style with lots of ornate gold painted carved wood. We’d never before seen a synagogue where the Bima (where the rabbi sits) is in the back. Also unique was the “Elijah Chair” reserved for the prophet Elijah.
The synagogue itself is locked but tours are on the hour and you arrange for them at the shop on the corner. Reservations aren't necessary but it seems that the language of the tour is determined by who gets to the office first. We were the only couple on our tour but a woman came in just as we were about to leave for the synagogue and wanted to take the tour. However, she didn't speak English so the tour guide told her to come back in an hour for the next tour.
