Visit Congregation Beracha Veshalom Vegmiluth Hasadim to uncover the rich history packed within a relatively small building. One of the oldest synagogues on U.S. soil, this building has held a weekly service since its construction in 1833. Wonder inside to admire the pews, altar, and the bimah, all of which are carved from mahogany. You'll notice that the synagogue has a sand floor, which allegedly represents the Israelite journey through the deserts of Egypt. Visit with a guide for an in-depth explanation of the building, or pick up a brochure and go at your own pace.

  • We visited the synagogue today and enjoyed it so much! Àgi, the docent met us inside and gave us a wonderful history lesson while answering our questions and showing us around. Can’t recommend it...
