Jewish Synagogue in Barbados

Recommended Posts

We just got back from Barbados and just a word on the Jewish Synagogue in Barbados. We arrived on Barbados on a Saturday, and thought it might be a good idea to visit the Synagogue on the Sabbath, maybe attend services.

Not a good idea as the Synagogue isn't open on Saturday this time of the year. They only have Friday night services, and the Synagogue, and the grounds, are all locked up tight on a Saturday. It IS open during the week, just not Saturday and Sunday.

We happen to be fortunate, as there was a gentleman who had some work to do in the Synagogue, saw us standing by the gate, and asked us if we would like to tour the grounds. Of course we did. Little by little more people came and soon we had a crowd. This gentleman was so nice he called the caretaker to open the Synagogue for us so we can tour it also. We all chipped in for a handsome tip for the two wonderful gentlemen, but most won't be so lucky.

Cheers

Len, glad you got to see the Synagogue.

 

We were also fortunate as you were when we visited there and we have returned for other visits.

We have also been there before, but we thought it might be nice to attend services on a Saturday. Gosh, I even put pants on, but alas, it wasn't too be. It did work out very nicely for us. We were on the NCL breakaway and while there, there was a group from a Celebrity ship, also in port, from Australia. We enjoyed talking to them and ended up having a very nice time.

Cheers

Len
