Members Only Tour of Touro Synagogue – Jan 2018

The Members Only Tour of Touro Synagogue was wonderful.  We learned so much about Touro’s role in religious freedom.  Their use of media presentations was fascinating but the best part was the history presented by tour guide Linda Nathanson.  Many thanks to Delia Klingbeil for arranging the event.
