Neveh Shalom Jewish Synagogue, Paramaribo
(4.5/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
Observe the deep Jewish roots of the Surinamese capital by visiting Neveh Shalom Jewish Synagogue, a place of worship established and built by the Ashkenazi community of Jews in Paramaribo in 1719. Head inside and survey the unusual sandy floor--purportedly a reminder of the Hebrews' 40 years spent in the desert after exodus from Egypt. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore one of the oldest synagogues in the Western hemisphere.

  • I was alerted to the fact that my driver in the keizerstraat a synagogue and mosque side by side. He told me a story that one evening of a Muslim feast day was a problem with parking space and that the synagogue when their site have opened up to visitors for the mosque. That is typically another example of the huge brotherhood that exists between the Surinamese people. There, the rest of the world some of learning!!

  • It is true that the iron gates facing the street but around 150 away in the next building is a Moskè. The building is painted white and in colonial style.
