Curaçao’s Mikve Israel Emanuel synagogue featured as one of the most memorable wedding venues in the Caribbean on

SynagogueWILLEMSTAD – According to the popular website “Most Caribbean weddings are pretty memorable. But getting creative beyond a sunset ceremony on the beach comes with pretty good odds that you'll never forget your anniversary. Whether it's the first time down the aisle or vow renewals, plan a heart-pumping new beginning with guaranteed bragging rights once you get back home.”

One of the experiences that will surely give you bragging rights is the Curacao’s Mikve Israel Emanuel synagogue.

USAToday had the following to say about the synagogue.

“For Jewish couples, look no farther than Mikve Israel Emanuel, the oldest synagogue in continuous use on this continent. Doing a brisk business in bar mitzvahs and weddings, the synagogue was built in 1732 in Willemstad with Spanish tiles that line the courtyard and floors that are still covered in sand that once muffled the footprints of those praying in secret during the Inquisition. For good luck, a wine glass is tossed onto a battered silver tray and during the procession, the bride walks with her father, the groom with his mother and the other two parents walk together keeping time with the beat of the pipe organ.”
