While we did not take the tour, the docent that gave us entrance to the building was extremely friendly and helpful. The location is beautiful in a subtle way.

A wonderful introduction to early Savannah history and the role of the first Jewish settlers who found refuge there. A beautiful temple.

While I'd heard that this Temple was historic and beautiful, I was unprepared for the rich storytelling provided by our docent. He provided a history and context for this synagogue, and I both learned a great deal and was moved by what I learned and...More

We arrived late and were given an extra 10 minutes later on . The docent was excellent, so knowledgeable. It was definitely an important stop on our trip

We happened by just as a tour was starting. Both the building and the short program was well worth the small donation they requested.

A volunteer docent who had a family connection to the synagogue’s founders played a tape giving the building’s history and then showed us around the small museum. Learning the history of the Jewish community in Savannah was interesting.

This was a stop on the Hop-On, Hop-Off trolley tour. We spent quite a bit of time learning the history of the building. It was very interesting and informative. The place is beautiful and still in use.
