Dedicated in 1763, Touro Synogogue is America's oldest synagogue. Descendants of Sephardim from Spain and Portugal seeking freedom from persecution founded the congregation in 1658. Peter Harrison, a known colonial architect, designed the synagogue. It is one of the best examples of 18th-century architecture in America. Friday services are held in the synagogue at 6p in winter, and 7p in summer. Saturday services are at 8:45a. Tours are conducted every half-hour Monday through Friday; in winter, tours are Friday at 1p and Sunday from 11a-3p. Donations accepted.
