On July 11, 1733 a community of 42 Jews disembarked from the William and Sarah to become a part of the new colony of Savannah. Members of Savannah’s Jewish community cured the city’s Yellow Fever epidemic, lead the revolution, and built monuments as grand as city hall and houses of worship. This is the tour that tells their story, shares their history, and shows the beauty they have added to this great city.
