  • Oldest synagogue in the United States. Small fee for touring inside the synagogue but there is also a park and information building. The information building begins the explanation of the history which will continue on the tour. The park is between the information center and the actual synagogue. I believe they stated services were still being provided. Amazing part of history.
  • Very cool to visit and tour the facility. It was a Must visit place for me and my family. Historical place.
  • A spectacular piece of history wonderfully preserved.
  • The synagogue is an amazing place to visit; not necessarily because of it's beauty, as it is quite simple, but rather because if the historical significance of it being (currently) the oldest synagogue building in the United States, and the subject of George Washington's famous letter in which he promised "to bigotry, no sanction, and to persecution, no assistance." A must-see!!
  • Or school visited today. Let's rank touro synagogue #1 tour guide. Rabbi mandel is awesome, explains everything in a very detailed, yet short way. Place is super clean. Students were very happy!
