I joined a group visiting on a Sunday morning. The tour was amazing, informative and at times funny. It takes around 3 hours, but you are supplied with tea and cake. We learnt not only the history of the synagogue but some of the surrounding area too

Jerry is a gifted teacher who has thoroughly researched the Plymouth Jewish Community and its place in the history of the West Country. Entry is by appointment with Jerry. I... More

History and geography of this venue was covered by an animated and enthusiastic. guide who happens to be the caretaker of the Synagogue. Although not Jewish, he had clearly researched thoroughly the history and location of the Synagogue. We came away with our heads packed with new facts about the Jewish religion, the layout and contents of the Synagogue, and... More
