So much history to learn here and the docent was wonderful. So in awe of the Torah's that are housed here and I'm not Jewish. Beautiful architecture.

While we did not take the tour, the docent that gave us entrance to the building was extremely friendly and helpful. The location is beautiful in a subtle way.

A wonderful introduction to early Savannah history and the role of the first Jewish settlers who found refuge there. A beautiful temple.

We arrived late and were given an extra 10 minutes later on . The docent was excellent, so knowledgeable. It was definitely an important stop on our trip

We happened by just as a tour was starting. Both the building and the short program was well worth the small donation they requested.

A volunteer docent who had a family connection to the synagogue’s founders played a tape giving the building’s history and then showed us around the small museum. Learning the history of the Jewish community in Savannah was interesting.
