If touring an historic synagogue perks your interest, then one must go to Mickve Israel Temple. This is the second oldest Reform synagogue in the United States. Take the tour and listen to all the history regarding this beautiful synagogue. The sanctuary is truly magnificent.

The tour and visit is an absolute must. Such a Beautiful Synagogue. History of how the Jewish people came to America to settle. I would like to visit services the next time that I'm visiting.

We enjoyed our visit to the 3rd oldest synagogue in the U.S. We took the tour of the sanctuary and attached museum which was very informative. The synagogue is on Monterey Square.
