Neveh Shalom Jewish Synagogue, Paramaribo

4.5
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. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Paramaribo trip simple and quick.
