St. Thomas Synagogue Virgin Islands
After you tour Blackbeard’s Castle come over to see another National Historic Landmark, the Saint Thomas Synagogue.
The Saint Thomas Synagogue is a U.S. National Historic Landmark that was built in 1833, and is the second oldest synagogue on United States soil. It also has the longest history of continuous use by a Jewish congregation in the nation. It was built for a congregation founded in 1796 by Spanish and Portuguese Sephardic Jews who had come to the Caribbean Basin to finance trade between Europe and the New World.
