Call the Institute of Southern Jewish Life in advance if you'd like to take a tour. The local community is really proud of the synagogue and try to be very accommodating to visitors. It's a lovely building but even more so, the story of the Jewish community's involvement in Natchez is really interesting. It's really the only place in town... More
