What a great experience to walk inside the temple and see a beautiful construction, the Gothic style synagogue.

Perhaps the most beautiful synagogue I have ever seen! And, the guide was a member of the congregation. Very interesting tour, but oh, the sanctuary was gorgeous.

We visited Dec 30th after reading other reviews. This was highlight of day trip. Very good information given by local guide snd member. Nice building with excellent presentation of celebrated items such as torahs, historical documents and photos. Take the time to do this tour.

A very interesting experience to see a synagogue thru the eyes of a southerner. Great museum, interesting and welcoming guides. The oldest Torah in the United States. Absolutely worth a visit.

Great history of Jews in the South from the American Revolutionary War era to present time. The synagogue was magnificent.
