Offering tours of the oldest Jewish congregation in America (settled in 1654, hence the name), the tours explore the landmark Tiffany-designed 1897 neoclassical structure as well as America’s oldest Jewish cemetery (consecrated in 1656). The 1654 Society is committed to making knowledge of the Jewish-American experience available in order to “understand the past, celebrate the present, and build the future.” Walk through the Synagogue, ancient cemeteries, archives and exhibits while learning the history of the Jewish people in America that is not taught in textbooks.
