Tour took about an hour and was very informative. It's a beautiful building and the tour guide who is a member of the congregation was fantastic. The upstairs museum had some very interesting exhibits.

The long history of the Jews in Savannah was interesting and previously unknown to me. The Temple is on one of the prettiest squares we saw in Savannah.

We enjoyed the audio, tour of the church and museum upstairs. Many original scrolls and artifacts are preserved and encased upstairs. Beautiful quilt and historical memorabilia which showed their cultural heritage . I was impressed by their community spirit. It is well worth your visit....More

The tour is very worthwhile. The history of the synagogue is most interesting and worth the short visit.

Very nice tour where you can learn a lot about the history of the Jewish population in Savannah. They are open to all people and any questions you might have.

I loved this tour. The guide knew the history of the Jewish population in Savannah. We had just come from a trolley tour and this tour nicely dovetailed with the trolley tour. We saw ancient Torahs and other Jewish heritage artifacts. Highly recommend this tour.
