Touro Synagogue: Step inside America’s oldest synagogue once again

Touro Synagogue, a National Historic Site, has re-opened for the 2022 Season and will be open 5 days a week in May. Touro Synagogue Foundation is also pleased to announce that the history presentations will once again take place inside the synagogue building, which had been closed for two years, due to covid restrictions.

In addition to the award-winning presentations by knowledgeable and engaging guides, visitors may explore two floors of interactive exhibits at the Loeb Visitors Center, and enjoy the beautiful gardens and grounds. Guests will learn why Touro Synagogue is an architectural masterpiece of the Colonial era and why it stands as a symbol of religious freedom for all Americans.

Beginning in May, the site will be open to the public 5 days a week, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., with 6 tours offered each day, every 45 minutes.
First tour: 10:00 a.m. Last tour: 1:45 p.m.
