Re: no sephardic synagogues The Touro synagogue is also Ashkenazi! Reply

No Sephardic Synagogues? Both the Touro Synagogue, and Beit Yaakob are both Sephardic(one spanish, the other syrian). The Koisel (Kosel,Kotel,Kothal,(Remind me if I left any pronunciations out)) is not sephardi, ashkenazi, mizrahi, temani, etheopian, indian. It is for all Jews Reply

Video I wish this video picked upand mentioned those in smaller countries or at least show a picture of them. This would be more appropriate to the title of this video, Synagogues-Around-the-World. Reply

jews of the world Jews are of many nations colours and features. This video is only portraying them as white. This is a very bad stereotype.

Please update this video. This is misleading. Reply

The synagogue of Cong. Jeshuat Israel in Newport, R.I. is the oldest existing one in the U.S. but was not the first one to be built in the U.S.That distinction belongs to Cong. Shearith Israel in N.Y. which dedicated its first synagogue building in 1730 at what is now 18-22 So. William St. (then Mill St.) remaining there until 1834 before moving uptown to Crosby St. & subsequent moves. Reply

Chabad, please update this video. To be fair to its title " Synagogues around the World", Chabad needs to update this video to mention the other regions of the world where there are Jews that are smaller communities but need a reference in such a documentary.

I hope Chabad does not cater to only regions where Ashkenazi Jews came from and this is just an error that can be corrected with an updated version of this video. Reply

Synagogues around the world Why did your leave out Australia!!!!!!
We have synagogues older than most of those you have shown.
Australia is the only Diaspora country growing more observant and with a growing Jewish population. Reply

Jews of Puerto Rico Did you know about the jews of Puerto Rico if you dont check out Reply

Missee many countries..... Did you know about Jews in India, China, Puerto Rico, etc. I believe this video only shows the more popular and the well off regions.

I wish this video picked upand mentioned those in smaller countries or at least show a picture of them. This would be more appropriate to the title of this video, Synagogues-Around-the-World.
