Barbados Sights

Nidhe Israel Synagogue

Updated 02/27/2014

Fodor's Review

Providing for the spiritual needs of one of the oldest Jewish congregations in the Western Hemisphere, this synagogue was formed by Jews who left Brazil in the 1620s and introduced sugarcane to Barbados. The adjoining cemetery has tombstones dating from the 1630s. The original house of worship, built in 1654, was destroyed in an 1831 hurricane, rebuilt in 1833, and restored with the assistance of the Barbados National Trust in 1987. Friday-night services are held during

the winter months, but the building is open to the public year-round. Shorts are not acceptable during services but may be worn at other times.
