This is a Must See for all Newport visitors. The Touro Synagogue has an amazing history dating back hundreds of years. As the oldest synagogue in North America, the story of Touro reflects the importance of freedom of religion in the United States.

Tours are offered on most weekdays and our guide, Maude, was fantastic. Her comments were quite informative and she did a great job of engaging with visitors of all ages - including a class of 4th graders.

At last the Touro Synagogue is re-opened and a definite must see! There is an excellent tour guide who gives the history of the synagogue. There is also a lovely gift shop. The Synagogue itself is orthodox and people still worship here. Jewish families emigrated from Spain and Portugal and it is the oldest synagogue in the U.S. I can’t rave about this synagogue and tour guide enough…just a real honor to be here. A definite must-see! Tour guide speaks about 40-45 minutes.

We attended a presentation in Touro's gardens. The docent talked about Touro's beginnings. Several Sephardic Jewish families immigrated to Newport in the late 1600s and formed the Jeshuat Israel congregation. They built the Touro Synagogue in 1763. It is the oldest synagogue building in North America. The docent told us the elders transferred the deed to the New York congregation for safekeeping when the revolutionary war broke out and that congregation now owns Touro.
After the initial presentation, we walked over to the entrance of the synagogue. We were allowed to view the interior from the threshold, but couldn't go inside due to Covid.

Enjoyed the lecture about the of the temple and its history. We could not enter the synagogue due to Covid restrictions, but got to peek inside and take photos. We also took a guided walk through the town while a lady explained the history of the city and the Jewish community. The guide was very knowledgeable and it was an enjoyable walk.

The tour was about the history of the Jewish community in Newport. The tour guides were informative and had a wealth of knowledge. So many of the buildings and documents are still there. We never knew about President George Washington’s famous letter . You should take advantage of the synagogue portion and the walking tour of the old town. Well worth the time and money.

This is the oldest synagogue in the US. We had a wonderful tour given by Linda, a friendly, warm-hearted, knowledgeable woman (from Boston) who is dedicated to this institution. Very recommended.

Fascinating to hear about the history of the Touro Synagogue and what life was like in old Newport. Our docent was excellent and knew so much about the history of the synagogue. We were only able to peek in the front door and we’re not able to go inside due to Covid restrictions. Highly recommend a visit. The Visitor center down the hill is with some time too before heading up to the synagogue.

If you are interested in American Jewish history, this site is a must. Touro Synagogue is the oldest surviving U. S. synagogue building. Because of COVID, small tour groups sit outside and hear a talk about the synagogue. The tour guide opens the doors of the building so tourists can take a peek, but aren't allowed inside. There's also an interesting exhibit about the history of the synagogue in the visitors center. Also, tout guide Linda was especially skilled.
