“heavy heart day”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

This tour is given on a happy, upbeat note, with no mention of the holocost. However, it was holocust memorial day when we visited and I felt so drawn toward their sorrow and history. However, don't be afraid to take this tour. This is not how they conduct it at all. This is a reformed religion, not the ortrhodox. The artifacts are interesting and they have several torahs to see. I highly reccoment this tour as well as the Baptist African Church tour.

“Beautiful, unusual in so many ways.”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

It's an unusual architecture for a Temple, but it is absolutely gorgeous. Also very interesting to find the history of the Jewish population goes back so far into the original founding of Savannah.

“Worth the visit”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

People will be surprised to hear about how important this Temple is as both an early example of inclusion, but also a beautiful gothic architectural structure, and a wonderful history of the people of this temple.
