“Great way to end vacation”

Beth Israel Synagogue
Reviewed 11 January 2014

We spent he last night of our vacation at services in Beth Israel! the conservative synagogue in Aruba. what a great way to end. There were approximately 45 people attending, everyone was warm and welcoming. The service, all in Hebrew, had a guide got help those who did not read Hebrew. The service was approximately 40 minutes and followed by a nice Kiddush with lots of meets and greets. We will definitely be vattending services on every trip back.

My wife and I have been going to Aruba since 1993 and we became Off Shore members since then. we love being with the local people and have made many friend with them. I don't go to often at home but look forward to going in Aruba. the services are short and enjoyablele especaly when Caption Peters does the service.

I had the very great privilege to serve as visiting Rabbi for the Beth Israel synagogue in Aruba for 5 years in the mid 1990's. I was warmly welcomed by the President and Secretary, treated to marvelous hospitality and had great nachas in conducting Shabbat services, teaching Bar and Bat Mitzvah children and sharing Jewish history and Biblical literature with the congregation.
The Aruban Jewish community is small in size but great in spirit, devotion, dedication and love for their beautiful synagogue. It was my great honor to serve them.

Rabbi Esor Ben-Sorek, Ph.D.

A wonderful way to appreciate the Jewish presence in ARUBA and what it has and currently does contribute to the history and the ongoing business of the ARUBA. The building itself is interesting but, if you are a practitioner (or not) and you are in ARUBA during a HOLIDAY or a WEEKEND then participation with the congregation is an exceptional experience. We highly recommend a visit.

We attended the services on Friday evening at 7:30 (the times posted said both 7:30 and 8 PM so we came early) and found the congregation to be a mixture of locals and tourists like ourselves. People were very friendly and we ended up driving a couple from Long Island back to their hotel
