“Truly interesting historical building.”
Reviewed April 4, 2012

Survived the war and the planners. Small but mesmerising. Still carries the weight and stimulation of very many generations of the Plymouth Hebrew Congregation. Once we found the right contact to be given a short tour this became a very interesting experience. An essential part of our city that we had previously only know from the simple enigmatic exterior. Like where it is too.

“Hidden Plymouth History”
Reviewed November 17, 2011

Hidden in the centre of Plymouth, this little known piece of Plymouth history is well worth a visit. Look out for open days or ask the Rabbi if its possible to look in and see this tiny synagogue. The ark was salvaged from the Devonport synagogue which was destroyed in the blitz.

Shown around by a member of the congregation a couple of years ago. Fascinating in every way. Fantastic and miraculous that it survived the blitz.

“A pity its not regularly open for public tours.”
Reviewed February 7, 2010

The oldest Ashkenazi Synagogue in the English speaking world. In constant use since 1762. Spared during the blitz. A beautiful spiritual place.
