A jewel box of a synagogue. The visitor center sets you up with context to appreciate the building itself. The real treat is the very educational talk by the docent, Linda, as we viewed the building. Excellent!

This is the oldest synagogue in the US. George Washington's letter on religious tollerence was addressed to the Touro Synagogue congregation.

The synagogue is an amazing place to visit; not necessarily because of it's beauty, as it is quite simple, but rather because if the historical significance of it being (currently) the oldest synagogue building in the United States, and the subject of George Washington's famous letter in which he promised "to bigotry, no sanction, and to persecution, no assistance." A must-see!!

If you want a ceremony filled with tradition, there can be no better place than the oldest synagogue in the United States. Touro Synagogue is small and there is no air conditioning. Time is limited to non-tourist hours. Parking is nearly non-existent. Location is a mile or so from the Newport Mansions. If your budget allows for a reception there you will have parking for your guests and will need to arrange for transportation to Touro Synagogue. Mazel Tov.

Steve Linsky

Must see for all but, particularly all people of Jewish Heritage.

Newport Rhode Island...beyond the mansions. Or rather, before.... So much more from where this comes from. Thinking outside the Bellevue Box.

Lazaros Tal

(Translated by Google) Some say the oldest synagogue on the continent, built in colonial style, where there is hardly - lucky to have guests. (Original) יש האומרים בית הכנסת העתיק ביותר ביבשת, בנוי בסגנון קולוניאלי, מניין יש בקושי - מזל שיש אורחים.

Justin O'Connor

Moving history of early religious tolerance in that much of our world needs to learn from today. The Loeb Visitor Center is beautiful and we'll conceived, the staff knowledgeable, courteous and friendly. A must experience.

Christian Petrarca

A spectacular piece of history wonderfully preserved.

Angela Keppel

I was given a personal tour of this beautiful space because I happened to be the only person there for that time slot. What an important part of America's religious history and a great group of people happy to share their story.

Jade Phillips

Great architecture, and historically significant.

Sholem Felberbaum

Incredible experience. The first synagogue in the USA. Incredible tour experience, the woman who gave us the back story was great. Highly recommended.

RJ Reinert

Must stop in Newport for any history buff. This is the oldest synagogue in the United States. An interaction here in the 1700s between the congregation and President George Washington helped establish freedom of religion in the United States. There is a small admission fee. It gets you into the synagogue, the grounds, andva very well-done museum. Note: there is NO on-site parking.

(Translated by Google) The first synagogue in the United States. Unfortunately it was closed. Looks pretty and well groomed (Original) בית הכנסת הראשון בארה״ב. לצערי היה סגור. נראה יפה ומטופח להפליא

Oldest synagogue in the United States. Small fee for touring inside the synagogue but there is also a park and information building. The information building begins the explanation of the history which will continue on the tour. The park is between the information center and the actual synagogue. I believe they stated services were still being provided. Amazing part of history.

Very well maintained and preserved. Oldest standing synagogue in the US and the only one ftom the colonial period remaining. Was constructed in 1763. This is the congregation that wrote a letter to President Washington when he visited to which Washington responded that they would be free to practice their religion in the USA

Amazing Jewish heritage

Isaac Alon

This was a profound experience that brought us back to the 16th ,17th & 18th centuries for us to understand what it meant for the Jews in those days who escaped religious prejudice & antisemitism from Europe. To discover the new world and flourish under the fear of the unknown, maybe.....

Richard Wight

Very interesting tour and narrative provided
