Neveh Shalom Jewish Synagogue, Paramaribo

4.6
Observe the deep Jewish roots of the Surinamese capital by visiting Neveh Shalom Jewish Synagogue, a place of worship established and built by the Ashkenazi community of Jews in Paramaribo in 1719. Head inside and survey the unusual sandy floor--purportedly a reminder of the Hebrews' 40 years spent in the desert after exodus from Egypt. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore one of the oldest synagogues in the Western hemisphere. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Paramaribo trip simple and quick.

  • Went during the open monument day and had a splendid guided tour. Guided tours are available on select days at certain times. Beautiful Synagogue, worth a visit.
  • Must see even from the outside. You can go in I think they close at 2 pm.
