My husband is Jewish and had no interest in visiting, but I insisted we go. He was so happy I made him go! This place is beautiful. A gothic temple - how odd! Our tour guide, Annette, was very engaging and entertaining. She encouraged questions and had all the answers - but beware - she also asks YOU questions :) Get there at the beginning of the tour times - it's not stated that they start right at 10 or 2, but it seemed that way - people came in later than that, and had to catch up. Jews in Savannah. Who knew? It's a reformed temple, but we were both a little unnerved that you can go up on the Bimah (Altar) and then when Annette opened the Ark... I'm not Jewish and I was a bit surprised. Husband says every temple is different. The upstairs is a small VERY interesting museum with a Torah from the 1600s or so. Don't miss this one!
