Trace the same steps walked by the colonial-era Jewish community in Newport and see where congregants lived, worked, and worshiped in the 1700s. The hour-long walking tour by knowledgeable and engaging guides takes you through the Touro neighborhood and brings the rich history of the synagogue to life.

Numerous points of interest on the walking tour include the former home of Isaac Touro, the congregation’s first spiritual leader, and stops on Washington Square (“The Parade”), and the house occupied by Moses Seixas, the author of the famous letter to President Washington in 1790.
