Touro Synagogue

supporting the Touro Synagogue Foundation
National Historic Site
Newport, RI

Touro Synagogue in Newport, RI is the oldest synagogue in the United States and a symbol of religious freedom for all Americans. It is one of the most historically significant Jewish buildings in America and was designated a National Historic Site in 1946. Designed by Peter Harrison and dedicated in 1763, it still serves an active congregation and each year greets over 30,000 visitors who come to see the magnificent interior and hear its remarkable story.

Our Task

The Touro Synagogue site was outdated. We had to rethink the navigation of the site to incorporate the Touro Synagogue Foundation with its programing as well as showcasing the active congregation — Congregation Jeshuat Israel — who worship at the synagogue. Our goal is to update the content of the site in a clear way, incorporate compelling photography for the beautiful building and complex and make the ease of learning about the activities of Touro Synagogue and the ability to support its programming and donation services.
