Bonaventure Cemetery Jewish Tour!

Visitors to Savannah are often surprised to find a Jewish community so far South and, even more so, when learning its origins go back to Georgia’s 1730s, playing a key role in the creation of Georgia as a place, and it is often not what people expect! They arrived here under much strife and threat but would become major contributors and builders of Savannah and beyond! We tell you their earliest struggles to get to Georgia, the perils they faced once here, and then their fascinating rise to all of life’s stations! Shannon Scott conducts his very personal takes on many of those Jewish friends buried in Bonaventure Cemetery.

A sneak peek at some of the questions we will answer:

  • How did the oldest Torah in America get to Savannah?
  • Which Jewish scientist had clearance at Area 51?
  • Is it true Woody Allen’s publicist is buried here?
  • Which Jewish family were bootleggers?
  • How are so many families Jewish & Christian?
  • What’s the story of The Holocaust Memorial?
