  • The tour guide, Sandra, was great. She knew the history of both the shul and the town. The place needs some TLC but has a great gift shop. I hope that helps with fundraising.
  • One of the most beautifully restored synagogue's in the country and we are blessed to have it right here in our own town. It is often overlooked when people visit Charleston but if you have a chance, it is a great place to tour and see some remarkable preservation!
  • Sam, Not for nothing, but you are a putz. Pay attention and don't be self centered. Attend Shabbos services.
  • Me and my wife are visiting Charleston as a potential place we would like to retire Arrived 20 minutes late for last tour (Tours are at 1 and 2 and we thought there was also a 3:00 PM tour). Asked the lady at the gift shop if we could take a quick look at the sanctuary as we told her we were leaving tomorrow and would not be able to come back. She refused to let us view the sanctuary. If we do decide to move to Charleston or know of anyone else thinking about moving there we would warn them to stay clear of joinging this temple. Not one ounce of warmness or hospitality. Such a shame as we had a beautiful tour of the downtown Savannah temple a couple days ago. Sam Heiman Member, Board of Trustees United Hebrew Congregation St. Louis, Missouri
  • Very fun historic tour with a nice staff. They are very knowledgeable about the history of the building and the jewish community of charleston.

Where to stay in Charleston

Charleston is serviced by dozens of local hotels and practically every major U.S. chain. Expect to pay top dollar for a room on the downtown peninsula, particularly if you wish to stay in one of the historic hotels. The upside of taking a room there is the proximity of all major attractions--you won't need a car to explore and enjoy your visit. Less expensive options are available in North Charleston, West Ashley, and Mount Pleasant, where you'll find all kinds of inns for the budget-conscious traveler.
