Hebrew Congregation of St. Thomas

This intimate synagogue, built in 1833, is considered the oldest U.S. synagogue in continuous use (a hundred families still worship here). Visit the National Historic Landmark to find mahogany pews, ornate domes and scrolls that survived a fire. The most famous feature is the sand floor, which symbolizes the Jews' journey across the desert to find the Promised Land.
