The tour explained about the Jewish settlers that came to early Savannah, as well as the growth of the community and the building of this unique Gothic-style temple. I am not Jewish background but enjoyed the tour very much.

We received a good tour of the Temple and its artifacts, but I would have liked to learn more about the history of the Jewish Community in Savanna.
