The current Neveh Shalom synagogue was built around 1843, succeeding a building dating back to 1723. The Portuguese Jewish community has even been present in Suriname since 1665, settling first inland in 1665 on the Jodensavanne. The synagogue looks immaculate and can be visited only on appointment according to our guide ... we did not get to go inside during our bicycle tour. Symbolic of Suriname’s successful multiculturalism, it is perched right next to the cities most significant mosque.

My girlfriend and I visited the synagogue during our trip to Paramaribo. I am not sure if there are usually visits allowed but the kind man let us in and showed us around. He was so enthusiastic and we really enjoyed hearing from him.
The synagogue itself is beautiful and it is filled with white sand to keep it cool. We got to visit the loft of the synagogue which was really cool. We were also shown the small building where people are baptised and also a small collection of historical items and antiques.
It is amazing how this place is situated right next to the mosque.
Overall, I would absolutely recommend seeing the synagogue if in Paramaribo.

I don't believe the building is normally open for visits. It is net to see this large, impressive synagogue next door to the grand city mosque.

the synagogue is smaller than the mosque nearby but it has a lot of history from almost 300 years ago.

Interesting jewish historical building with graveyard en Mikwe. Local guides can explain its history and the jewish presence in Suriname since the 16/1700's.

This is a synagogue that you cannot miss. Built in 1723 it is one of the oldest continuously operating synagogues in the Western Hemisphere. It is absolutely stunning and beautiful inside. The white sand floor give it in otherworldly feel to it. The Bimah and the 11 Torah scrolls are absolutely stunning and everything about this Synagogue makes you feel like you are in a Holy place. Do Not miss it. I wish I had time to attend a service.

This building is a bit off the beaten track. To get inside you have to go on a Monday, Wednesday or Thursday. The exterior is however worth seeing if you're nearby, and the pure interest in seeing a synagogue sited next to a mosque, which itself is an interesting design.

Very impressive synagogue, wish they were open.
No one answer the phone there. Have called many times.
Like the synagogue in Curacao, this one too, has a send floor.
