“Wedding”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

We were delightfully surprised at the beauty of this historic Temple. Rabbi Belzer was gracious to those of us attending for a wedding.

“A must See”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

Heard mixed reviews on the Temple, but decided to see it after all. Very happy we did. The docent was very informative and found the museum small but very nice. Really enjoyed the tour and learning about the Jewish religion.

“History with a twist”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Something you don't expect to see - a Gothic synagogue with wonderfully well-kept interior. Stick around for the service and you'll meet people who are descended from the original settlers of Savannah and whose names can be found in the cemetery going back 200 or more years.

“Surprising slice of Savannah colonial history”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

Extremely interesting history behind this place! Very knowledgeable docent. We were the only two people there when the tour started, and we still got the full tour.

“Churchlike temple”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

It is very interesting to learn that Jews were among the early settlers of Savannah. It is worth it just peeking in or taking a tour. Not open to public like St. John's where you can walk in when there is no service.
