This ranks with the historical 19th century synagogues of Europe and Israel as well worth a visit. Visitors of any religion will find a beautiful and graceful spiritual space. The modern stained glass may be jarring to some, but a synagogue is not meant to be a period piece. The museum also tells the story of immigrants to America, eager to carve out a place for themselves.
There is a small, plain synagogue in th lower story of the building. This is where the small congregation meets each Shabbat for prayers. I saw a cart with siddurim (prayerbooks) and a Hebrew calendar - evidence that it is used for prayers on a regular basis.
