Create an itinerary including St. Thomas Synagogue
Declared a National Historic Landmark in 1997, St. Thomas Synagogue remains an elegant and unique site with a rich heritage. The second oldest in the United States, the synagogue was built in 1833 for a Sephardic congregation established some 40 years before. The history of the site echoes through the European architecture speckled all over the building, such as Dutch chandeliers that hang overhead. You will be immediately struck by the sand floor of the synagogue, for which no one is sure of the origin, although helpful guides will happily provide you with popular theories.
