The oldest synagogue in America is practically right around the corner. – In Short
With its Colonial American architecture, Touro Synagogue may seem an odd bastion of Jewish life on this side of the Atlantic. But situated on a quiet street and oriented to Jerusalem, Touro is, indeed, the oldest synagogue in the United States, and a national historic site. The tour-guide is often led by the congregation's rabbi who gives an enthusiastic and fast-paced lecture on the history of the synagogue and of the Jews of Newport.
