Definitely worth a trip to the oldest functioning synagogue in the western hemisphere. To really enjoy it, take a tour of Jewish Curacao with Gigi Scheper at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Caution: she doesn't accept credit cards or checks.) As a leader of the community, she'll give you...More
Such a beutiful synagogue- excellent information nicely presented. Enjoyed the museum. Gorgeous courtyard.
