Fabulous tour of this amazing synagogue. The reconstruction has taken years and is very impressive as was the historical and social context provided in the tour. I really enjoyed the time spent here.

The trip is worth it just to see the truly amazing window. The tour guide was knowledgeable and patient. The first floor is a display of the restoration efforts of the congregation.

The synagogue is beautiful and has been restored extraordinarily well. It is definitely worth a visit. Unfortunately, the tour guide was not as informative or knowledgeable as we would have hoped and took forever (well, an hour, anyway). We would have done better to view...More

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
