The Oldest Jewish Synagogue In The Western Hemisphere

This fascinating museum is housed in a Jewish community center which dates from 1750. The museum tells the story of the community who used the synagogue, which is not only the only synagogue in Bridgetown, but which also holds the distinction of being the oldest synagogue still in use in the western hemisphere.

The synagogue was founded in 1654. No wonder that it is now a precious site, protected and preserved by the Barbados National Trust. The museum opened in 2008 and now tells the fascinating story of the Jewish community in Barbados.
