Jewish Music

We attended a evening of Jewish music. Had three musicians. The one young man played the pipe organ. Spent too much time on music history. Would've like to hear more music.

Very interesting building with informative historical marker. Didn't realize that Natchez had many Jewish families that were leaders of the community. Many played important roles in the history of the town.

I suppose this is an unusual review as we didn't get to see this place or learn of it's history. Don't even know if it is still "open". Maybe next time. Did see the temple in Greenville MS - great history and beautiful building.

The reason for average rating: We were on a carriage ride tour and only saw the outside of the building which is absolutely beautiful. We didn't have time to tour but hope to visit it on our next visit to Natchez.

Many of the congregations of the old churches and temples in Natchez are small enough that the survival of their houses of worship are in question. The Temple B'Nai's congregation is very small... the world beyond Natchez beckons to the children of the remaining members... as is the case with the other denominations. But, the stories of their past mix... More

Call the Institute of Southern Jewish Life in advance if you'd like to take a tour. The local community is really proud of the synagogue and try to be very accommodating to visitors. It's a lovely building but even more so, the story of the Jewish community's involvement in Natchez is really interesting. It's really the only place in town... More
