This was not only a beautiful place to see but the information we learned was very interesting. It was only $5. each and that included a guide. The guide was very knowledgable and patient, as we had a lot of questions.

We listened to Annette, who gave us the history of the Jewish immigrants' arrival in Savannah as well as the history of this Synagogue ,the style of the building (which almost looks like a church on the outside, except for the Star of David),its stained glass, organ and torah ( that arrived on the first ship in 1733), etc. There is also a wonderful museum on the 2nd floor. This is a must see as it is so different from any other reformed temple.

For a small donation you get a docent led tour of the synagogue, some history of the earliest Jewish settlers, and a museum of artifacts. Regardless of religious affiliation, I recommend this very interesting tour.
