Beracha Veshalom Vegimulth Hasidim Synagogue, Charlotte Amalie

4.6
#5 of 15 in Historic Sites in St. Thomas
Visit Beracha Veshalom Vegimulth Hasidim Synagogue to uncover the rich history packed within a relatively small building. One of the oldest synagogues on U.S. soil, this building has held a weekly service since its construction in 1833. Wonder inside to admire the pews, altar, and the bimah, all of which are carved from mahogany. You'll notice that the synagogue has a sand floor, which allegedly represents the Israelite journey through the deserts of Egypt. Visit with a guide for an in-depth explanation of the building, or pick up a brochure and go at your own pace.
